Week 7

SWOT Analysis

SWOT analysis stands for Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats. Using this method, I will be able to demonstrate skills and technique about myself, showing off the good and opportunities whilst looking for improvements on the bad and of any possible threats.

The things I will consider for each point of the method:

Strengths:

  • What I do well?
  • What skills I can offer?

Weaknesses:

  • What can I improve on?
  • What weaknesses do I have?

Opportunities:

  • How can I improve?

Threats:

  • What are the challenges?

Team Performance

So far, the performance of the group has been up and down. Although we have been keeping up with the group meetings, it looks are though some of our communications is getting missed. I have noticed this is somewhat becoming a regular theme to which I am afraid that I may not be able to share my concerns which could affect the overall team project as well as the Module.

I have previously raised my concerns to all member about current situation and was hoping the team would be able to give me a flexible work around. At first, they seemed to understand but this had gone out the window when there was a sudden urge to complete tasks.

When I saw that it wasn’t possible to work outside of my working hours and the demand to hand over the work was too much of a short notice, I raised this to my tutor to look for a solution. As Week 7 as almost completed, I didn’t want to leave this to the very late.

A meeting has been set up in week 8 to discuss the possibilities.
