Performing in Organisation

Presentation of Proposed Action Plan
You have been granted 15 minutes with a panel of representatives from your Human Resources Department at the company where you work. You will be required to give a 2 minute ‘elevator pitch’ in which you outline to the representatives a plan to enhance your performance. The aim of the presentation is to gain the support, and approval, of the Human Resources Department to develop a more detailed written plan for submission. The plan will focus on how you can improve your psychological approach and performance in an organisation. If appropriate you may wish to outline how your improvement could impact others. For example, if the plan is around your work as a leader that it will have an impact on those you manage. Even if you do not have any line management roles then you will likely interact with a number of colleagues and so any improvement may have an impact on those interactions. So, in brief, the benefits of the plan need not be confined to you.
After the 2 minute ‘elevator pitch’ the panel representing the Human Resources Department will ask questions about your proposal and dig a little deeper into the rationale and evidence for your plan.
The issues raised in the presentation, and from the feedback, will be useful in informing the full write up of your plan which is the second assignment.
Content and Structure
In delivering your ‘elevator pitch’ we would expect you to outline what the aim of the programme is, and what the benefits are for you personally and the company, the feasibility of the programme and the likelihood of success.
The questions will focus on these issues and also explore a little deeper into the evidence base and rationale for the proposal.
