At the end of the First week a booklet was handed to the group, that included a self-assessment test, in order to evaluate the skills of the individual in managerial decision making and that had to be completed for the week that followed. It was the first time for me to do something like that and I was amazed to realize that typical decisions in business environment has such an effect and that the manager has to take so many things in consideration. The module program also included a trip visit to Manchester Airport and a video presentation and to my mind these things were very strange so I was looking forward. The visit to Manchester Airport, was a really educational visit in every way. I have many times in an airport and sometimes spent nearly half a day but it was that presentation by Mr. Aidan Mooney (Business Development Manager), Richard Kaberry (Corporate Strategy Manager) and Chris Walkden (industry Affairs Manager) which gave such a clear view of the operation and managing of an airport. What was a surprise to me , was the fact that the only thing the airport did not charge was the oxygen. They make money out of everything. A full report on the airport was given in the first part of the a assignment. The video presentation was also a surprise. At first I was against the whole idea because of the little time and the weather but it proved to be the most educational of all. When you have to manage number and fact it is easy comparing to people and especially, among different cultures and nationalities. But if there is a purpose and common sense everything can be done. I was very happy that day although I was unsatisfied by the way things were going before we started because I realized that prejudice is the worst thing a manager should have. The result of course wasn't so good as the other but I was proud I took my lesson which worth more than a good grade. PESONAL DEVELOPMENT WORKSHOP MANCHESTER AIRPORT 1 ...read more.
