Kaplan University Graduate School of Management SELF DIRECTED LEARNING PLAN The Self Directed Learning Plan (SDLP) is a process and document to chronicle your accomplishments and learning steps through the MBA program and beyond as they relate to your professional goals. The SDLP will help you to identify and target the array of competencies you need to reach your professional objectives and to help you organize your Kaplan MBA learning experience to suit your career objectives. The SDLP will be a section of your Career Portfolio, so take some quality introspective time to consider strengths and areas of development relevant to your career objectives. We encourage you to contact Career Services for feedback on relevant competencies for your career goal, as well as other insights. By knowing your strengths and areas to develop, you can begin a plan to find out what you need to do to achieve your career goals. We encourage you to continue to reflect on the identified areas throughout the MBA program. If you feel strength or development area is no longer relevant, you may add another to take its place. At any time, you may also add additional areas. Your Name : Jeanne Tarrant Date: 04/6/2010 Course Title: GB519 Measurement and Decision Making Professional Goal (3-5 years) from now: In 3-5 years I would like to be involved in marketing, either for my own business or within Kaplan University. At this time I plan to move forward in my career at Kaplan, taking advantage of all opportunities available for training in any management capacity. My next step is to move into a Team Leader position and follow through on any opportunities to move into an ADOA position. The ADOA position would be a necessary step to build management experience and is generally required at Kaplan before transitioning into other management positions. Strengths to Leverage Step 1: The most effective and satisfied people align their work with their natural strong points. Identify 3-5 of your key strengths (see Column 1 below); these could be a competency, skill, ability, knowledge area or personal characteristic. Think about how you can leverage those strengths to be effective in your work, achieve your professional goals, and become a leader in your profession. Step 2 : At the beginning of each course in your MBA program, answer the following question either using this template or a narrative format. What do you expect to learn in this course that will help you leverage your strengths? (see Column 2 below).
