Background:

Throughout our module and course, we have studied academic development, professional development, management theory and practice, management psychology, critical theories, creativity theories, and completed psycho-metric tests. The idea behind all this is to link them to you personally, to allow you to reflect on your own personal, academic, professional, and creative abilities, and how they can be developed in your future professional career as a manager. Everyone is different, so this is a highly personal and individual assignment.

Task:

Using, applying, and referring to each of the items and tasks we have completed in Theme 3: Personal Development, plus referring to your previous pair / team tasks where appropriate, and your *Essential Additional Online Readings* (see below), your task is to produce an individual Personal Creativity Plan (PCP), 2,000-words, following this structure:

Introduction: (approx. 200 words), where you explain, with examples, what you have done this year in your Module and Course overall to develop your academic, professional, personally, and creatively, and as a potential manager.

Main Body:

Reflection on the Theme 3 tasks and materials: (approx. 500 words), where you explain, with examples, what you have learned from the tasks / theories / materials we have covered in Theme 3, and how they can help develop creativity in you and your team colleagues now and in the future (refer to Amabile / Rogers / http://www.testmycreativity.com/ https://mycreativetype.com/).

(ii) Reflection on team-work: (approx. 500 words), where you explain, with examples, how you have contributed to your pairs / teams throughout the Module in Theme 1 and Theme 2, what you have learned from your teams / pairs, and how you can influence creative team development in the future (refer to Amabile / Rogers / http://www.testmycreativity.com/ https://mycreativetype.com/ plus appropriate items under *Essential Additional Online Readings*).

(iii) Personal Creativity: (approx. 500 words), where you explain, with examples, how you plan to continue your own Personal Creativity (PC) in the future, beyond your studies, and into your life-long creative professional career (you can refer to Amabile / Rogers / http://www.testmycreativity.com/ / https://mycreativetype.com/ plus items under *Essential Additional Readings*, plus items and materials from anywhere on the Module and your Course).

Conclusion: (approx. 200 words), where you explain, with examples, how studying business management theories, critical and creativity theories, management psychology, and using psycho-metric tests, can help develop you and your colleagues academically, professionally, and creatively, and as a potential manager (you can refer to Amabile / Rogers / http://www.testmycreativity.com/ / https://mycreativetype.com/ plus items under *Essential Additional Readings*, plus items and materials from anywhere on the Module and your Course).

Notes:

Use Arial 11, 1.5 spacing, and follow the Harvard system of referencing, see: https://student.londonmet.ac.uk/media/london-metropolitan-university/london-met-documents/professional-service-departments/library-services/referencing/HarvardReferencingGuideFull2016-05.pdf
You must refer to and reference the wide range of the items / materials / tasks / theories / assignments we have covered throughout the MN6066 Module. Do not outside of these MN6066 items and materials.
You must also make use of visuals, such as graphs, images, tables, and charts, to enhance your written text – that way, your PCP will be much more visually appealing.
