Assessment of My Professional Needs
My current professional needs include acquiring new competencies and skills that can support my career goals. My short term goal is to get a new job in a challenging environment or organization that can result in personal growth. My long-term goals include completing my MBA and getting a managerial job. These achievements will make it possible for me to empower others and produce quality outcomes.
I possess the best skills in quality assurance (QA). I have what it takes to coordinate various QA practices in order to improve the level of safety. I am ambitious, analytical, and hardworking. I possess different leadership skills that can support the performance of many firms. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration (DBA) with a Concentration in Quality Management (and a Minor in Marketing). I have an International Computer Driving License (ICDL). I also have a diploma in communication and computer networks.
There are various deficiencies that might affect my professional needs. I strongly believe that more competencies can make it easier for me to achieve various goals. My leadership skills should also be developed further. This is the case because I lack adequate competencies to deal with diverse groups.
Personal Development Plan
Short Term Goals
I am planning to secure a position in a successful organization. The organization should offer a challenging environment in order to support my career objectives. The environment should also sharpen my competencies. I also want to acquire new leadership competencies that can support my professional and personal goals.
Long Term Goals
The first long-term goal is to complete my MBA from Saudi Electronic University. I also want to get a senior position or role in a reputable organization. The third long-term objective is to become a manager in a large business venture or company.
A powerful action plan will be used in order to achieve the targeted long-term and short-term goals. The first step is to apply for different jobs. I will target specific organizations that have new job openings. The targeted positions revolve around quality assurance, business coordination, and marketing.
The second step will be aimed at identifying different professionals and managers who can become the best mentors. After identifying such individuals, I will collaborate with them and embrace the most desirable practices. The approach will support my short-term goals.
The third step will be characterized by continued research. The research will mainly focus on evidence-based managerial theories and quality assurance (QA) practices. The obtained ideas will be used to support my future career objectives. I will also use this step to establish meaningful relationships and teams with different workmates. Such teams will equip me with appropriate competencies that can make me successful.
The fourth step mainly focuses on my academic needs. I will have completed my MBA by 2017. This achievement will make it easier for me to pursue my long-term goals. The course will also equip me with advanced managerial skills. I will also acquire extra competencies such as decision-making, problem-solving, and critical thinking.
This final step will be implemented after completing my MBA. I will look for a new job as an organizational manager. This leadership position will encourage me to use every skill and ability. I will also embrace the idea of lifelong learning. This practice will widen my career options and eventually make me successful.
