Why a presentation?
Presentations are useful methods of sharing important information, and are common formats used when training your audience how to do a specific task. Likewise, employers often seek individuals with presentations skills, as they can be trusted to communicate effectively. This assignment gives you an opportunity to practice giving a presentation, and also create a guide that future students of this course can use!
Using the storyboard from the discussion this week, create a How-To Presentation that teaches how to complete any assignment you’ve done so far in this class. YOUR GUIDE MUST TEACH YOUR AUDIENCE HOW TO COMPLETE A TASK RELATED TO THIS COURSE. This can be a general guide on how to do an entire assignment, or merely a portion of one (such as how to format APA-style citations, or methods to make sure you get your discussion board posts in on time). If your discussion board posts don’t match this requirement, you can instead choose a new task related to the course for your presentation.
Try to choose a task that can be completed effectively in 5-10 steps, as longer instructions might get overwhelming.
Your presentation will have to include both audio and visual elements.
Your presentation must have an audio component. You can accomplish this by choosing one of the following options:
OPTION 1: Have someone record you on video (or record yourself) as you present using slides, drawings, posters, or other visual aids.
OPTION 2: Record the audio using PowerPoint or another tool that allows you to record your voice (e.g. Audacity, Screenr.com, iMovie, Windows Movie Maker, or other software).
If your presentation is a video, you can use any available method to represent your steps—you can hold up images representing your steps, actually perform the activity as you narrate each step, or use a screen-capture software to record your screen if it’s a computer-related task (a free online program that allows you to do this is Apowersoft (Links to an external site.).)
If you don’t want to record yourself visually, you can use Microsoft PowerPoint, Windows Movie Maker, or any other appropriate software that you’re familiar with to make a slide presentation or video that includes both your audio and visual elements.
If you plan on using outside sources for your images, you must include full APA-style references for each. You can have these on a single “References Page” at the end of your video or presentation, or include them underneath each picture as you show them. Either method is fine for this assignment.
To complete your assignment, submit your video or presentation here, or submit a link to it if you’ve hosted elsewhere (such as Youtube.com).
If you record your presentation as a video, it should be NO longer than 5 minutes.
Week 2 Discussion/Performance Management Process
Question 1: Choose an organization that you are familiar with and consider the links of the performance management process as shown on p. 42
a. prerequisites – performance planning
b. performance planning – performance execution
c. performance execution – performance assessment
d. performance assessment – performance review
e. performance review – prerequisites
Discuss whether the links are present in the organization and in what form?
Given your answers to the first question, what can be done to fix each of the disrupted links in the process?
Question 2:What is the difference between job and work analysis? What are the best data gathering methods that should be employed in job and work analysis? What might be potential biases that may emerge during data gathering and how can they be mitigated? In your own words, how would you convince an organizational leader to engage in this practice if they are not currently doing so?
Each question needs minimum 250 words and a citation in APA
Performance Management Connections
1. What is your personal definition of an effective performance management system? What role does Human Resources have in building an effective performance management system? How does effective HR analytics measurement play into this process? What are the ramifications of a poorly implemented system?
2. Performance Management is a continuous process of identifying and measuring, and developing the performance of individuals and teams and aligning performance with the strategic goals of the organization. Many organizations have systems that are labeled performance management but they are usually only a performance appraisal system. Contemplate the performance system of a company that you have worked for or currently work with.
Based on the Characteristics of an Ideal Performance Management System – how does the organization stack up? What is done effectively? What is done ineffectively? What would you change based on the readings and videos that you watched this week? (pick any job that’s generic, like a cashier, sales, customer service)
250 words per question and citation in APA
