WALDEN UNIVERSITY16DDBA 8006: Contemp challenges in BusinessTime Management PlanAlbin Akansake
TIME MANAGEMENT PLAN Time Management PlanLaying the Foundation (Goals)At the beginning of this program, I stated my goals about how I want to drive my future. Those goals remained unchanged. However, they have constantly been updated and more polished as I know more about myself and my potentials in the course of pursuing this program. As I stated in week one, my first goal was to ensure that I do everything possible within my power to finish my DBA program and pursue a career in the teaching and education field. The confidence and enthusiasm I now have to accomplish these goals are as a result of my experience in DDBA 8006. I had a bad and rough beginning of the program especially in DDBA 8006, but asI move along in every week, I have made a lot of improvements in my writing skills and APA stylewriting, this gives me hope in the future.I also indicated as part of my goals that, I would want to become a business owner after graduating from this program. I want to start and grow my own business. That too remains unchanged; I believe I am heading towards the right direction, and my goals are moving towards attainment as I pursue and witness progress in the program. Through the DDBA 8006 course, I learned valuable lessons from the cases of Netflix and Toyota. I believe more case studies of that kind, going forward will help me gain some knowledge and know what to expect as a potential business owner and how to confront them should they come on my way in the future as a businessleader.Finally, I stated my intention to serve my country as my last goal. Like all other goals, this too has not changed, I just have not paid much attention to that right now since this is a long time goal, I will focus more on this goal after I achieve all other goals. I pushed that a bit aside while actively pursuing the two most urgent goals first. The idea of putting this goal on hold for a 2
TIME MANAGEMENT PLAN moment came in the course of DDBA 8006; I learned to prioritize goals in order of priority to be able to execute them successfully because trying to be a jack of all trade will end up being a master of none.
