6.Appendix: Reflection writingIn this section the discussion is based on the knowledge,information and skills acquired in session 1 to session 5, the most valuablefeature and recommendation for design of the module.With regard to session 2 which discusses strategy, mission andvision and stakeholder mapping. In strategy I have learnt that businessand companies operate in different environment and the different businessneeds to formulate strategies and evaluate them so as to gain acompetitive advantage. By applying Rumelt’ s reflection, a strategy whichis adopted needs to be consistent, advantage, consonance and feasible sothat it can be helpful to the organization. Similarly, a strategy needs to bealigned to the mission and vision of the organization. The mission andvision of the organization tends to focus on the scope of the business andfrom my understanding is that a mission and vision is extremely importantas it distinguishes one business and the other. The vision statementalways state the direction of the organization and answer the questionwhat the business wants to become. It is important to identify all thestakeholders of the organization so as to best meet their needs. Bothstakeholder analysis, Stakeholder mapping and stakeholder engagementidentifies the stakeholders thereby meeting their interest.
