Assessment 3: Blog (35%)
Length: 2 x 200 word blogs and a minimum of at least one comment per week (Weeks 8 & 9). One final 200 words blog (Week 10) on a different topic.
Continuing from your first Blogging experience, this second community Blog extends your knowledge of a master manager by thinking, analysing and discussing ideas and exploring the concepts of competing and paradoxical master manager characteristics.
Once again you will gather academic and other material to reflect your views on management, as well as generating an online debate about management, managerial styles and your own response to the CVF survey and resulting ‘spiderweb’.
Gather academic and other materials which reflect your views on 'The Topic':
Understanding the internal environment is a necessary attribute of a modern tourism and hospitality manager
As we did for your first Blog assessment, you will post a summary during each week over two weeks and then actively engage in discussion and debate with a community of MTLs on the relevance and importance of your material.
The third week (Week 10) will see a topic/question posted by the Unit Assessor which will provide MTLs with a themed blog interaction.(once i recived the topic i wil send you that time ).
A focus of this second blog is for MTLs to link your research and ideas back to some of the discussions in the first blog (Assessment 2). Although conversation and interaction are important outcomes, the linking of ideas and informed debate will result in a more informed awareness of the competencies of a Master Manager, and will allow you to actively engage with the concept of the CVF from the Qunn et al (2015) text.
Remember, to be an active ‘management team learner’ within your community, our expectation is that you will (in addition to your original summary post) access, contribute and engage in discussion at least once per week.
Find at leastfouritems(use academic( atleast 1), industry and multimedia items) that are relevant to the topic
Understanding the internal environment is a necessary attribute of a modern tourism and hospitality manager.
Prepare two blog entries based on at least 2 items/papers each (maximum 200 words per entry).
Blog entry should:
Access your Community Blog space on the MKT01907-2018-1 Blackboard site.
Post your first blog entry during Week 8.
Discuss and debate within your community of ‘management team learners’ by engaging with these articles and the issues raised through them.
Post your second blog during Week 9 remembering to discuss and debate within your community.
This is the same task as Assignment 2, but on a different Topic.
Themed Blog Interaction
At the start of Week 10, a final discussion blog topic/question will be provided by the Unit Assessor.
It is expected that MTLs will come together to discuss this final topic and draw upon knowledge acquired and ideas shared throughout the community blogging process. Given that it will be an open dialogue (meaning all MTLs of your community will be contributing to the one conversation at varying times and with varying regularity), you are encouraged to engage early and often to avoid being left behind in the conversation.
ASSESSMENT 3: BLOG: MANAGEMENT AND THE COMPETING VALUES FRAMEWORK IN TOURISM AND HOSPITALITY
I feel that the manager's job is a very challenging job. Every organization has a manager who takes the responsibility to guide the employees as a part of the “career development” aspect such that the employees can achieve (Quinn et al. 2015). The manager should have the capabilities to guide that fresher in the right way. Additionally, being able to motivate employees as per Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs is to be demonstrated as well (Soni & Soni 2016).
However, as my monitoring CVF as a manager is 6.2. I have the capability of monitoring each and every employee working under me. When an issue occurs, it is the manager who helps them overcome those issues (Kossek & Thompson 2016). Flexibility is maintained by the manager so that the work can be explained in an easy manner (Quinn et al. 2015). The manager can reach the employee with the innovative idea of the projects which they are working on. Liberal nature of the manager helps in motivating the employees to do better work. My mentoring CVF score is 6.2. I feel that I can be a good mentor for my employees. My coordination score is 6.6 that is a plus point. I have the capability to coordinate with my employees through explaining “task significance”. My broker CVF score is 4.7. I feel that is one of my weaknesses and I need proper development on this.
