8 Summary

This week you have been introduced to some practical action-planning techniques that can be applied to personal development and are useful for planning future learning. You have developed a vision for your future, and set yourself a SMART goal to form the basis of the action plan you will develop next week.

While doing this, you have learned about:

  • the process of action planning
  • the importance of having a vision
  • turning visions into practical goals
  • the PMI decision-making technique
  • writing SMART goals.

As next week is the final week, you will be able to bring together all the knowledge and skills you have developed so far on this course to help you develop a plan for achieving your goal. You will also be encouraged to reflect on the process of learning.
