BSBWOR301: Assessment 2

1. Draw a chart to represent the organisation’s goals, your team’s goals, your KPIs and your individual work goals.

2. Explain how your individual work goals will help the organisation to meet the goals.

  • Individuals working in organizations with strong functional roles are tasked with producing artifacts and intermediate products rather than whole slices of functionality.  Rather than focusing on the big picture, it is the individual’s job to produce intermediate artifacts as quickly and as efficiently as possible.  An analyst should synthesize requirements and produce specifications as quickly and effiicently as possible; a designer should take requirements specs and produce UML diagrams; coders should execute those designs; a tester should find as many bugs as possible; etc.  However, in this system who is concerned with the organization’s real goal of getting product to market?
  • Financial incentives are based on intermediate artifacts, not functional product.  Individuals are often evaluated for raises and bonuses by functional managers, even in matrix organizations.  Rather than evaluating individuals in light of their contribution toward getting product out the door, organizations tend to evaluate solely on the individual’s functional role.  A tester is evaluated according to how well she tests; designers are evaluated according to their ability to create UML documents; etc.
  • Promotions are based functionally, which creates another form of incentive that diverts attention from the organization’s goals.  While similar to financial incentives, promotions are another way organizations reinforce what they value.
  • 3. Using the work plan template, prepare your own work plan for the two-week period (1 August to 15 August), putting your tasks in order of priority. Including contingency plans for solving problems that have occurred or may occur in the future.

    4. Explain why it is important for you to have a current work plan, including the possible outcomes if your work plan is not up to date.

    Planning ensures that you are staying on track with your goals and you can ensure that you become more task oriented. Planning also provides the framework for informed decision making. Finally, planning allows focus and personal energy direction.

    Planning is important as it allows you to prioritize your work, get more done in less time, helps you to produce quality work and keeps as disciplined.

    It is quite important to plan your work so as to improve on your productivity by ensuring you are staying on the right track with your goals. For effective planning, the most important tasks should be listed at the top of the list and the least important tasks listed at the bottom. The tasks performed should be ticked off from the list to keep you on track.

    Planning is important to ensure timely completion and deliverable results. It allows you to know what results are possible and what the best path to the desired outcome should be.
