Managerial & CPD


You are required to submit a single ‘portfolio’ assignment (i.e. one

document). This should contain three elements as detailed below:

1. An evaluation of EITHER your own OR your organisation’s

approach to learning.

The focus here should be on critical consideration of existing

approaches. If evaluating at the personal level, you should focus on

exploring your own approach to learning, the strengths and

weaknesses of your learning preferences and practices. You should

include reference to literature and theory on learning at the individual

level. If you chose to evaluate at an organisational level then you

should focus on evaluation of the organisation’s policy, practices and

approaches to learning and development. Again, you are expected to

make critical reference to literature and theory on organisational

approaches to learning and development.

2. A development action plan and commentary on the challenges

you will face in undertaking it.

Your action plan should focus on a specific area of development that

you want to address. You are responsible for identifying the area of

focus for your action plan. Your chosen skill should fall into one of

three broad areas for development:

? PERSONAL SKILLS aimed at improving self-awareness, selfreliance

and personal effectiveness; for example, managing time or

stress, creativity, emotional intelligence, presentation skills, foreign

language skills.

? PEOPLE SKILLS focused on building effective working

relationships; for example, handling conflict, leadership, coaching,

cross-cultural skills, team working, negotiation, feedback.

? CAREER MANAGEMENT SKILLS for maximising opportunities

arising from the changing environment and job market place, taking

responsibility for your career and managing the relationship with

work and learning throughout your career; for example, CV

development, interviews, networking, assessment centre


Your action plan should include the following features:

? It needs to express your purpose and intended outcomes; there is a

strong link between your motivation and the likelihood of success.

? It should include both progress goals, which act as milestones,

and outcome goals, to achieve your ultimate purpose. Progress

goals may be priority sub-skills. For example, you could identify

voice projection as a skill which contributes to the overall goal of

improved presentation skills.

? An indication of how you would monitor each activity or progress

goal and ensure it contributes to the final outcome stated.

? It should not rely solely upon one course of action. If you have a

range of options available, you will be less likely to be deterred by

unexpected challenges or obstacles.

? It needs to be written in precise terms, following a rigorous and

systematic analysis.

Your commentary should briefly discuss the challenges and barriers

you might face (personally and professionally) in undertaking this

action plan and identify how their impact may be minimised.

3. A reflective account

This should address the experience of studying on the MBA in general

and this module in particular. The intention is to consider your

experiences of engaging in this developmental activity. The reflective

account is your opportunity to demonstrate your ability to learn from

experience through analysis and look ahead to consider how it may be

useful to you in the future. This should be a personal account and

therefore written in the first person (‘I’).

A single portfolio should be submitted containing all three elements and

these should be clearly separated from each other, with clear and

appropriate titles. Start each of the three required elements on a new

page. You are expected to split the 3,500 word limit for the assignment in

approximately equal proportion between the three elements outlined
