Personal/Professional Development Paper
My major is Accounting

The purpose of this paper is to articulate a strategic development plan for your personal/professional life. I say both personal and professional as they are clearly related and linked. Yet, the focus of this particular paper is on the professional development side.

Task: Carry out a strategic assessment of YOU. Go through a mission/vision analysis, an internal and external analysis and then draw up a plan for closing the gap between the resources and capabilities required and those you have now. It is important to show that you can apply the strategic knowledge learned in the course to the write up of your analysis and plan of yourself. Demonstrate that you have learned!

Now admittedly, this will take some tweaking of the strategic frameworks and processes that we have discussed. But that is OK. They are tools and they are flexible. The key idea is that I want you to give serious consideration to:

Your Direction-mission, vision, values (up to A? page): Write a mission, vision and values statement for yourself.

Your external environment (Up to one page): What factors outside of you (outside your body) impact your ability to move toward your direction? Money? Family? Connections? Geography? Economy? Etc. These can both be facilitators and obstacles. Be sure to identify these and describe them in a way that clearly shows how they impact your ability to move toward your direction. What do these need to look like? What do they currently look like? Be sure to fully articulate the answers to these last two questions!

Your internal environment (Up to one page): What factors inside you (inside your body) impact your ability to move toward your direction? Personality? Knowledge? Skills? Fear? Again, these can be both facilitators and obstacles. Be sure to identify these and describe them in a way that clearly shows how they impact your ability to move toward your direction. What do these need to look like? What do they currently look like? Be sure to fully articulate the answers to these last two questions!

Your prior business and liberal studies (up to .75 pages): Discuss how your previous business and liberal studies have contributed to who you are, what you know and to your future.

The plan (Up to 1.25 pages): Now you have done some analysis. Time to create a plan. For both the external and internal analyses, you identified what the factors need to look like and what they look like now. The plan will focus upon how to close the gap. How might you overcome the external obstacles? How might you leverage the external facilitators? How might you overcome your internal obstacles/weaknesses? How might you leverage your internal facilitators/strengths?

The plan should demonstrate that you have given this serious thought and that you have made some decisions regarding what you will do and by when. It must be specific enough to be useful. If you can articulate it, you can do it.

Formatting. The paper should flow in the same order as presented above. Please do include a cover page with your name, the date, Personal Development paper and any other information you deem relevant. Use 12 font, 1 inch margins single spaced, Times New Roman.
