Self- reflective practitioner and component, Risk Management

In practice, you will often be asked to report on a given situation, problem, project or even your own performance.  It is neither realistic nor honest nor appropriate for you to claim your performance is excellent when you know that you were rushed, under pressure and under performing.  In addition, claiming that your work cannot be improved suggests that you cannot learn any thing new and damages your credibility with your employer.  It also demonstrates that you cannot critically review your own work or accept and deal with your weaknesses. This makes you a potential legal risk.

To help prepare you for the "real world" and by way of a self assessment section of the assignment, I am introducing you to the concept of the "reflective practitioner". What does this mean?

  • The self-reflective practitioner will review their own work (or other peoples work) to improve the management of similar situations in the future.
  • The self- reflective practitioner will identify and avoid mistakes and decisions that involve legal liability.
  • The self- reflective practitioner will ensure that their communication is clear and unambiguous. (In many instances, such as in legal and accounting practice, this is achieved by ensuring that all the items on a 'check list' have been correctly examined. For example; if I am required to file a tax return for a client with the ATO, it must comply with requirements as to form, detail and time. If I fail to do this correctly the client may end up paying too much tax and I will be personally liable for the cash difference due to my negligence. This may amount to thousands of dollars.)

The purpose of this self assessment section is therefore, to encourage you to create a 'best practice' procedure and to give you the opportunity to review your own work prior to submission.  You should ask yourself:

  • "Have I proof read this work?"
  • "Would this make sense to someone who did not know previously what I was writing about?"
  • "Have I correctly communicated what I was trying to say?"
  • "Is this work publishable? Would I want to read this in a book, a magazine or on a website? If not, how may I raise the quality of this work to a standard that I or others may wish to read?"
  • "My client or employer will assess me on this work. Is this something on which I would be ready to risk my income and livelihood?"
  • Have I correctly 'risk managed' this project to avoid the risk of legal liability?"
  • "Have I correctly cited every reference of every source I have used, and when I have used it?"
  • "Have I followed the form and process required?" ie. the "General Guide to the Presentation of Academic Work?"
