Effectiveness and usefulness of the learning experience
I think week wise projection of the learning seemed beneficial for me in achieving a deeper understanding of the usefulness. As a matter of specification, I developed my skills, abilities, knowledge and competencies in conducting quality research. Within this, U came to know about exposing proper approach towards topic selection. I learnt that it is time consuming process. In spite of that I devoted a quality time to select the right topic. I think it proved effective in terms of proving my capability. The research, which I conducted for selecting the topic, enriched my awareness about the recent trends in business. Here, I got the support of peer reviewed journals, which upgraded my knowledge on the subject matter of the research.
Objectively description of the learning process
In the initial stages, I learned the basic concepts related to the literature review and methodology in a research. Within this, I gained quality knowledge about selecting the right topic for conducting a research. With the help of the tutors, I came to know that making a list of the possible topics is beneficial in terms of saving the available time. After this, I selected the topic of “Challenges faced in managing global virtual teams and strategies to deal with them.” Here, data collection from journals and internet sources broadened my thoughts on incorporating relevant information in the research. Prior to the initiation of the research, I did not forget to read the guidelines thoroughly.
Evaluation of the learning
After learning the basics of the research, I got to know that evaluation is an important component. This is in terms of discovering the drawbacks within the writing process. I can point out the instructions of the tutors regarding preparing the rough drafts for the chapters. Along with this, I also learnt about writing proposals for the research. I felt these proposals are like prelude to the chapters, setting the grounds for the basic issues.
Explanation of the learning process
Research in the initial stages expanded my ideas regarding the wide ranging topics and their implementation in the research. Here, I found that relevancy is the keystone for reaching to the minds of the audience. Enlisting the possible topics helped me in assessing my capability on writing skills. Researching on the selected topic of “Challenges faced in managing global virtual teams and strategies to deal with them”, enriched my grip over the academic writing. Along with this, I also gained knowledge regarding data collection for the research.
Future scope of the practical application of the learning
After learning the process of writing a research paper, I think I can produce my own thesis papers. This would enhance my personality. Researching on the management of the global teams has enhanced my skills as a leader. Therefore, in future, I can apply in management courses. Apart from this, I can utilize the learning in conducting self-assessment. This would help me in maintaining the balance between my personal and professional life.
