  1. 1. While conducting research and working with my team I was able to develop a couple competencies that will help me improve as a leader. My communication competency was and still not the best through cross platform communication (email and discussion boards). I still find myself writing as I would talk. My competency has improved, and I am consistently working on this skill which in turn is more professional in corporate America. Secondly, my critical thinking skills improved as I was researching into the market analysis portion of the comprehensive assignment. ToolsCorp has a lot of segments in which they operate and deciphering the data became more difficult as you began to dig further into those. This competency is vital in comprehending data we are given every day. As a leader I am asked to balance multiple tasks and the critical thinking skill I have gained will help me prioritize those tasks better the more I use this competency.  Comprehensive Project Assignment Paper.
  2. The essential elements of strategy are vision, mission, core values, and goals. Goals are defined before the vison and will tell how the vision will be achieved. The vision and mission are going to tell the company’s story. The vison describes the goal for the employees and will continuously need to be reviewed. The mission or mission statement is describing the company to the consumer and the shareholders. Finally, the core values describe the beliefs of the company and the current beliefs of the CEO. These beliefs need to be aligned with the vison and mission ensure success.

  1. What competencies were you able to develop in researching and writing the course Comprehensive Project? How did you leverage knowledge gained in the intellipath assignments (Units 1- 4) in completing the Comprehensive Project? How will these competencies and knowledge support your career advancement in management?

Some of the competencies I was able to develop upon would include time management, working with a team through the use of e-mail and DB’s, and gaining a clearer picture to what a proper strategy plan should look like.  During this course, my wife had to undergo a couple of surgical procedures, I was having to work some weird hours, and then try to find time to get all of my assignments in for this class, as well as, the other class I was taking.  Needless to say, there were some late nights with early mornings to get everything accomplished.  Some of the lessons within Intellipath were beneficial when trying to think strategically about which actions to take, and in what order.  Sometimes seeing something on a piece of paper is easier to plan for, than having taskings in your head and trying to spin them into a direction that leads you right back where you started.

  1.  What are the important elements of strategy? Why?

Some of the important elements of a strategy should include a vision and mission statement, having the right people assigned to do a specific role, and knowing the requirements from the company’s vendors. Comprehensive Project Assignment Paper.   The vision and mission statements will give the company a direction for the company to go in.  Having the right people in the right roles will allow for contingency plans to be implemented if needed, as well as having those with knowledge and experience to be called upon when something does go wrong.  And knowing who their vendors are and what they will require in order to get the products to the finish line.  Things such as timelines, raw materials, and scheduling need to be viewed and reminded to reduce any gaps in time.

  1.  What issues may arise if your do not identify all the potential disadvantages of your plan?

There could be several issues, and at time all at once, if potential disadvantages are not discussed.  Issues such as not having enough inventory on hand, or in transit, trucks breaking down, personnel not be available, machines (including computers) break down, or not having the updated software to run the computers and machines.

  1.  Why is it crucial to provide both proactive (during the implementation) and reactive (after completing the implementation) feedback to management?

Providing feedback during the implementation, as well as, after the the product is complete is very crucial.  During the implementation, you are able to identify the intent of the product and make changes, if available.  After the product is complete,  it becomes difficult to make changes to the final product.  All of the feedback given to management can direct which direction to go allowing fewer modifications to be made during the production process.  This can save the company money through the usage of raw materials being used, and man hours needed to make the product.

Career Planning
[WLO: 3] [CLO: 4]

Prior to beginning work on this assignment, you must download and use the Career Planning Guide  template to complete this assignment. Do not write a separate paper. This document serves as a guide as well as the template that you will submit for this assignment.
Career planning is an important step in your education as it allows you to consider your current skills and knowledge level. You then use that information to determine where you want to be in 10 years and what steps you must take to reach your goals. This assignment will help you explore your current strengths and weaknesses. It also allows you to consider the areas where there are opportunities and threats—in this case, potential roadblocks, in reaching your professional goals. Week 3: Career Planning Guide Paper.
You will note in the document that the order of planning is a reflection on your current skills and knowledge first, then the 10-year goals, and then the 5-year goals. The purpose for this order is for you to determine where you are right now and where you want to be in 10 years. The 5-year goals are what you need to identify as steps towards reaching the 10-year goals.

What is a career plan?
A career plan is a realistic career goal coupled with achievable, measurable action steps. We all have a dream job, but none of us will attain our dream job without taking small steps to reach that job. For instance, you cannot manage a department in a hospital without years of experience in entry-level and, later, mid-level positions. When you combine professional experience in your industry with your education (bachelor’s and/or a master’s), you are developing and proving your expertise—this expertise and experience combined is the key to attaining your career goals. Other elements like your networking and job search skills contribute as well.
But you must find a way to gain experience. 
Also remember that the steps below can often be undertaken at the same time. This means you can—and should—be gaining experience as you complete your education. In fact, completing only one step at a time can hinder your progress. Need guidance? Email careerservices@ashford.edu. Week 3: Career Planning Guide Paper.
 

Step One: Job Market Research
 
Instructions: Visit an online job board and search for an entry-level position in health care administration. Remember that an entry-level position may or may not require a bachelor’s degree. Entry-level positions are important in developing your career—these positions provide you with the initial industry experience that will translate to higher positions in administration.
 
*If you are already a mid-career HCA professional, you can search for a mid-level or, depending on your experience, management position.
 
Hints:
 
·         First, target job boards of providers in your area (a local hospital network or urgent care, for instance)
·         Do not discount smaller providers or basic clerical/administrative positions (local urgent care facilities, private practice, physicians, dentists, chiropractors, or naturopathic physicians) Week 3: Career Planning Guide Paper.
·         Remember that your first job starts you on the path to your dream job

Hints:
·         Remember that building a career is about connecting experience after experience to build expertise and credibility.
 
·         While a degree (bachelor’s or master’s) is an important goal, it must usually be coupled with experience in your intended field.
