Personal Strategy
:  For many the luxury of thinking about their own personal strategy is unknown or seen as unnecessary.  They are where they are and do not believe they are likely to go anywhere different.  For this assignment, students will have an opportunity to develop a strategic plan for their life.  Hopefully, it will include your thinking about yourself from the perspective of the strategic management model and other materials in the course.  Of particular importance might be lessons from the book, How Will You Measure your Life?  Some online materials for this resource will be referenced in the assignment sheet.

This plan is about you and your future.  It is your plan.  I will be grading it from the perspective of the process you used to develop your plan and what you included in your plan, not so much about the content or values in the plan.  These papers are to be four pages.

 (Note: I did not say work-life although that is obviously a significant part of your life.)

  

The book, How Will You Measure your Life?  includes three major areas:  your career, your relationships, and staying out of jail (your morals).  These will provide the major framework for grading the assignment.  See grading rubrics and the end of the syllabus for more information. 


* My bachelor’s degree is in art education and master’s degree in marketing, I do not have a clear plan of action for  Career. Write about strategy as it described previously.

The author of the book, Clayton M. Christensen, has several you-tube or other short videos about the book and some short summaries are posted online as well.  A list is provided below.
