My immediate boss gave me this entire assignment breaking the line structure and formalized it by getting it ratified by the board. He also built in an incentive and bonus deal for me to be awarded on successful completion of the assignment. In addition he has been hinting at a possible promotion round the corner. Thus given the critical importance which this task has for me it is time that I assessed myself dispassionately not only for the task at hand but for my entire future stay at Esprit.
I have entered a very challenging phase of my professional life , it is not only the environment of the new assignment but also new way of life to get even with the assignment. A successful accomplishment of the above assignment depends on what kind of goals wills I create and what kind of strategy will I follow. So I need to create a set of goals because with these goals, I will be motivated to be disciplined on time dimension. Goals would also help me create work plans between goals. I can also organize schedules to goal achievement and link various goals. The wide vision, knowledge, soft-skills, and hard-skills about business and communication with others which I obtained during my MBA and experience at first job would come in handy.However.it may be surprising to know that it is in all these areas that I want to augment further given the high profile target that I have in hand. In the personal development plan, I am going to explain various steps to achieve my goals.
Personal Developmental Plan
(a)Wide vision: I need to develop a contextual wide vision of the working environment. I have a very wide and geographically spread out group. It is multinational and quite high profile indulging in several activities simultaneously. Employees are permanent as well as temporary and come from multiple ethnic backgrounds and nationalities. I intend to develop my vision by cataloguing all published literature of the company and personnel records to get a clear idea about the employee profiles. I am going to browse intensively all the websites of all subsidiaries in a time bound fashion to know in detail the activities of various subsidiaries. In addition I am going to plan week long study visits to some of the major locations of our group. I would have the assistance of two persons in these activities and we would maintain records of all visits and studies by means of articles filed electronically in chronological fashion.
(b) In knowledge I am going to research various company products and technologies that support their offering till they reach markets. I am also going to do a peer analysis on group basis and study at least two groups in same lines of business as mine for employee relations and policies. I intend taking up intensive literature search and website
