I was assigned to write an essay reflecting on what I have learnt in the process of this business planning for this semester. The aim of this reflection essay is to readdress the skills and experience that I had gained while undertaking this assignment. The reflective journal is a personal record of my learning experiences (White, 2005).
I will be specific in this reflection essay about the things that has inspired me and how I used my ideas in developing my work and also my awareness of each of the context which I work on it. In this report, I have described what are the skills and experience that I gained, and also knowledge on wide area on business and commercial awareness which will be very useful for my future. I was grouped in a team of five for my group assignment where we are are required to submit a business proposal to turnaround Facebook and improve the image and reputation of the company. We were required to form a functional team with each member assuming a role of one of the functional members from any departments such as Chief Executive Officer, Chief Financial Officer, Head of Communication and Marketing Head of Product Development and Head of Human Resource. When the task was assigned and the potential barriers in searching was identified, we actually consulted the way that we are going to maximize our strengths in order to reduce our weaknesses, and also in what way to exploit the expected opportunities and remove the threats. Even though we are assigned to work individually on our part, but I have act as a team in helping my team mates in their parts and vice versa.
We had continuously had stayed in touch with each another through weekly meetings and also through whatsapp messages. This also helped me learn and understand their approach as well (Glover, 2009).
