Scenario for PP Assignment
Assume that you have been working as an intern in an IT company. Your key task is to support your training and development manager with the planning and implementation of a professional development event to targeted audiences. The training event is scheduled over a two-day period at a mutually agreed venue, and will include a number of activities such as workshops, pair works, presentation and discussion.
The centre requires a schedule of the types of activities proposed so that plans can be finalized. You have also been asked to design and deliver a workshop as part of the training event based on the dynamics of team working. To effectively complete the tasks you need to be able to apply a range of skills such as effective communicative skills, interpersonal skills, and time management skills. You need to be able to develop a specification of an identified problem, identify the tools and methods to solve the problems, plan and implement the solutions and finally be able to evaluate the problem.
Following the Scenario for PP Assignment provided above, here are the instructions for you all. I have broken down the entire assignment into 5 parts for your easy understanding and so that we can slowly get things done one by one...
Part 1 of the PP Assignment (in the written assignment assume you are working in a small team of 3 or 4, however this is an individual report)
1. Produce a professional schedule for a two-day event (using project management software- Gantt Chart) that identifies planning and resourcing prior to the event.
2. Design a training pack including a range of activities, seminars, workshops, team-building activities and break-out sessions. It is expected that 30 employees will attend the event. There is a large auditorium that will seat 60, and the outdoor center can accommodate 15 at any one time for activities. In addition, there are three break-out rooms, one with computers for up to 20 and two other seminar rooms that seat up to 30.
