Rationale: Why is this important?
Introduction to Management provides an overview for the broad set of skills and issues you need to be aware of as you manage yourself and others throughout your career. This assessment item has been designed to help you authentically summarise what you have learned this semester by (1) analysing cases using material linked to the learning modules, (2) create a professional development e-portfolio to which you can add throughout your studies, and (3) think proactively how you will use what you have learned to kick-start thinking about your career (reflected in the LinkedIn profile).
(1) e-Portfolio structure
Your electronic portfolio, or e-Portfolio, is a collection of artefacts that can help you develop new or deeper learning about the topics we have covered this semester. e-Portfolios can be shared with others and used to collect cases exemplifying your learning throughout your career as a student at RMIT. These examples will prove helpful when applying for a job.
Whereas e-Portfolios for Accountants or Nursing students will collect cases of clients or patients they have treated, and provide a handy reference library for their future practice, your e-Portfolio as a Business Student has a similar purpose – with a twist. Your e-Portfolio is a library of cases with learnings you want to refer to in your future business career.
Each section of your e-portfolio should include a link to your artefact, followed by a short statement about why you have chosen that artefact: sample e-portfolio.

What is an artefact?
An artefact is something (written, audio, visual) that represents some part of your learning. You will have four artefacts in your e-Portfolio:
Why do I need to use artefacts to create an e-Portfolio?
Artefacts are evidence on which you will write a report. You can also use and add to your e-Portfolio throughout your UG degree and potentially into the job market.
A sample e-portfolio is provided for your reference.
