MGMT90140 Management Competencies
Follow the following three steps:
Step 1: Complete the competence-assessment questionnaire (which will be posted on the LMS), as a self-assessment. Your responses to the questionnaire must be exclusively based on your own views and judgments. You must submit the completed questionnaire as part of your assignment.
Step 2: Based on your competence assessment, you will need to select two management competencies. You should select competencies that you think are most relevant to you personally and your career aspirations. Make this choice carefully: it will influence how you will contribute to group assignment (i.e. assignment #2) and will be the basis for your reflection essay in assessment #3 (see details below). Contact two colleagues, friends, or family members, and ask each one to provide feedback to you on these competencies. This feedback can be in the form of an email with at least a paragraph on each competence. You must submit your completed self-assessment questionnaire and feedback received from your assessors.
Step 3: Write a short essay (1000 words, +/- 10%, reference list excluded) based on the assessment results. In this essay you will address the following issues:
Assessment results: discuss key results (e.g. particularly strong/weak competence areas) and how they matter for your professional career, especially major differences between your selfassessment, and the two feedback/assessments you received from colleagues, friends, or family members, and discuss why these differences in assessment may have occurred. You will evaluate and analyse your own assessments and the feedback that you receive and reflect on the differences between your own perception and the feedback received from others and discuss insights gained. Reflect on your past experiences to identify your areas of strengths as well as those aspects that need further development.
Development focus: state and discuss what motivates you to make these two competence areas your priority and your “focus.
Development steps: for each of your two chosen competences describe two concrete steps for your personal development. These steps should be feasible, i.e. you should be able to implement during the summer semester and clearly demonstrate how these will lead to competence development.
In addition you need to consider the layout and presentation of the report to ensure that it is of a professional standard. This includes (but is not limited to) aspects such as spelling and grammar checking, formatting, conforming to the word count limit, references, citations and the use of supporting graphics.
