Business Strategy Development
Task This assignment is designed to help you put Kolb’s Learning Theory into practice (Reflective Observation and Abstract Conceptualisation). It will also help you think about your career to date and what you might like to do into the future. Specifically this assignment addresses the following learning outcomes: be able to identify personal career and life choices, go on to develop a strategy to achieve these, begin to apply them and appraise their efficacy; and be able to modify personal career and life choices according to changes in personal and environmental influences. Step instructions Part 1. Creating the Vision board Step 1 – Collect pictures (this may include words or phrases) that appeal to you. You can choose to work in a physical or digital format which means you may submit either an electronic version compiled with online sourced pictures or do it the traditional way with a cardboard poster and magazines. Step 2 – Size and sort pictures; Step 3 – Arrange them in a collage. If you are using digital media, then paste the pictures into a word document (not a PDF). If using a poster board then glue the pictures to the poster board and take a snap shot with your camera phone to add into your word document. Step 4 – As well as including a picture of your vision board in your EASTS submission you also need to upload your vision board to Padlet on Interact. You do not have to include your discussion but it is encouraged. Some useful advice The key to doing this is don’t over think the process. Treat this assignment like fun (think of it as a craft activity). It is about developing something that appeals to your senses. If you find a picture you like or a picture that evokes some kind of positive emotion just cut it out and put it aside. If you don’t know where to start buy a magazine that you would like to read (gossip, sport, gardening, cooking, PC, world news, photography, National Geographic, Time… anything) or Google images using a term that appeals to you (beaches, gourmet food, extreme sports, jewellery, snow, stock exchange, tattoos, fast cars, animals… anything). Words are also good or you might like to use a phrase that means something to you. You may submit either an electronic version compiled with online sourced pictures or do it the traditional way with a cardboard poster and magazines (but remember to take a photo and include it in your word document). You can find more information regarding vision boards in Interact. Part 2. Discuss your vision board Step 1 – Highlight and briefly discuss the themes that became apparent to you after completing the activity. (HINT: the themes will be little groupings that have something in common like family, success, travel etc) Step 2 – Discuss the main goals you see yourself wanting to achieve from now into the future (perhaps if you have been working for some time this activity reaffirmed your path or even demonstrated that you have already reached some goals?). Step 3 – Comment on what you thought of the activity – did something surprise you about your vision board when you saw it finished? Was it enjoyable? Did it cause you to think about your future? Or perhaps your past?
