7.6.4 Evaluate the effectiveness of your strategy

Using the records in your Skills File, look back over your number skills development work and think about how your decisions, and the facilities and constraints of your working environment influenced the way you tackled the task. How effective was your strategy in improving your skills? Identify what was and was not helpful in achieving your goals and outcomes, and assess how your own strengths and weaknesses contributed to this.

Evaluate your achievements against the criteria you established at the outset to judge quality and success. What do you feel you have and have not achieved? What factors had the greatest impact on your strategy? In the light of your evaluation, what changes, if any, would you make to your overall strategy?

Remember to carry out a self-assessment of your skills when you start a new course of study, or a new project. You then have a benchmark or reference point against which to assess your skills development
