General education | Human Resource Management homework help

ASSIGNMENT 1

Overview:

This week’s assignment is all about you.  Unlike the other assignments in this course, your work in this assignment will be a private conversation (of sorts) between you and your instructor.  Be as honest as you can in your assessment so you can use this information to make the most of your education as you move forward in this class and through your future learning experiences.

What is a SWOT analysis?

A SWOT analysis is a tool for evaluating the Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats (or SWOT) associated with something—usually a company, organization, or project, but can be applied to analyze an idea, an argument, or, as we are doing in this assignment, a person.

We separate the ideas of strengths and weaknesses as internal factors (personal strengths and weaknesses), from the ideas of opportunities and threats as external factors (outside opportunities and threats to learning).  These factors are usually presented in a chart with bullet-points followed by a brief narrative about each factor.

Threats

The first step in completing a SWOT analysis is to identify the specific areas being analyzed.  For the purposes of this assignment, you are asked to analyze the skills you acquired throughout your general education so far.  The categories we will analyze are defined as:

1. Communication skills;

2. Critical thinking skills;

3. Respect for diversity;

4. Professional, social, and ethical responsibility; and

5. Lifelong learning practices

Assignment Criteria:

Complete a personal SWOT analysis evaluating your understanding and skills in the five following categories:

1. Communication skills;

2. Critical thinking skills;

3. Respect for diversity;

4. Professional, social, and ethical responsibility; and

5. Lifelong learning practices

Your assignment should include:

  1. A SWOT graph with bullet-points defining your strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats as they relate to the five university learning objectives.
  2. A brief narrative describing each defined trait.

There is no page-length requirement for this assignment, however; you should make every effort to provide a complete and accurate personal analysis. Utilizing the SWOT Template (linked below) should help you structure and address every element in the assignment. Pay close attention to detail, including grammar, usage, design, and depth.
