write a Personal Plan and highlight how entrepreneurship and innovation play role in their personal and career paths.

inroduction
For this project, students will write a Personal Plan (PP) and highlight how entrepreneurship and innovation could play a role in their personal and career paths. The entrepreneurial process is at its core concerned with “the pursuit of opportunity without regard to the resources already under control.” This process is as applicable to your career as it is to start a company. The goal of this assignment is to identify where you want to be and how you will get there. Do not worry about your current resources. Think entrepreneurially! Your personal plan should include a long-term vision statement, the “external” opportunities that exist, your “Internal” (personal) strengths, and a strategy for yourself and your life over the next three to five years. In addition, please share at least one “failure” from your past and what you learned from it in terms of maximizing your potential for the future. The assignment should consist of content up to 1000 words that summarizes as many of the areas below as possible, as well as the one “failure” wherever you feel it best fits. Feel free to use tables to organize your project better. To sum up this assignment, an oral presentation will be due in week 15 in order to back up understanding and allow students a chance to justify their choices and further discuss their Personal Plan.

Part A: Written Report – Worth 100 marks
Consider the following topic areas and questions as you work on your Personal Plan Report.

Vision and Opportunity

What are your goals (career and/or educational) after you leave your university?

What are your purpose, your values, and your mission? List the 3 key questions that guide your choices. These should be essential questions that serve as touchstones to direct your life and work. For instance, how can I have an impact? What do I love? What do I fear? What engages my passions? How do I want to be remembered? The answers to these questions may well change over time, but when the questions themselves are fundamental they tend to last a lifetime.

What are the market and opportunity that align with your goals? Don’t restrict yourself to matters of career or work; think more broadly about your opportunities to make a difference.

2. Marketing and Implementation Strategy

Create your market positioning statement. This may be directed at a hypothetical employer, industry, organization, or the world at large.

What compelling value will you offer to your employers and society?

How will you differentiate from other UAE students? How about from the broader populace?

Risks and Mitigation

What are the key milestones and checkpoints in your plan?

How will you measure/determine if you have successfully attained these milestones? How do you define success?

What external factors might affect your attaining success? (Positively or adversely)

Develop contingency and risk mitigation strategies.

Entrepreneurship is not all about personal financial gain. It concerns crafting a lifelong plan to make a positive impact on society. Character does matter. Failure is OK; unethical behavior is not. True wealth requires the creation of enduring value, which requires integrity and ethics.

How do you plan to practice ethical principles in your daily actions?

If you could assemble any three people to advise and mentor you, who would they be? They may be alive or dead, family or world leaders, friends or strangers. Why would you choose each? Is it their wisdom, their accomplishments, their words, their creativity, their character, their heroic deeds………..?

Similar to popular “six-word memoir” exercise, please summarize your PBP in 6 words (e.g., “humanist engineer, global citizen, caring teacher”).
