Lions, thanks for the chat and for all the work that is being put behind the assignments. I would like to inform you that for the next 2 Sundays I will not be able to attend the Wikichat as I will be flying out and back into Ugnada. Victor please be so kind to chair the meeting for me. Wish you all a lovely week, and i will come back to you on the requests.--Luisaserra 16:59, 4 July 2010 (UTC)
Hove, Victor and Kay go to give an update--Luisaserra 16:48, 4 July 2010 (UTC)
We must confess that while we have been working on both assignments, we have placed a slightly more priority on the 923. We are however going to be on track with this one also. No worries so far.
You also need a similar hair dryer treatment from Luisa for being behind schedule.
Please remember that our commitment is to have all drafts circulated until the syudy school, so we can together make comments and consult the lecturers back at SBL, as lonf as we are all commited to that it is ok.--Luisaserra 16:56, 4 July 2010 (UTC)
Jeremiah, Evelyn and Akachi, what is the update on this assignment?--Luisaserra 16:06, 4 July 2010 (UTC)
The draft is ready, and i believe Evelyn is working on the updated version with comments from the subgroup. I am not sure how afr she has gone, coz i havent exchanged emails with her in the past week. But fpor certain there is a draft, which will be circulated to the team sooner than later.
thanks, it will be nice to have all drafts for discussion at the study school--Luisaserra 16:24, 4 July 2010 (UTC)
Hi apologies for joining you only now. The draft will be circulated this week, i am behind schedule, but will still be able to keep it within the timelimits.
Luisa, Shumi to give update. Shungu has sent an email with the work she has done so far on the assignment, she is still committed to deliver first draft on the 9th of July.--Luisaserra 16:44, 4 July 2010 (UTC)
If the sub-group is ok with Shungu's work and timeline, then there shouldnt be much problems on our side. We will look out for the draft.
thanks for resolving the issues with Shungu, we look forward to her contributions. We dont often appreciate how taxing work-study life is and how challenging it is for a group leader to manage the expectations of individual group members. Thanks Luisa
Jeremaiah, Akachiu and Evelyn to update.--Luisaserra 16:35, 4 July 2010 (UTC)
I am on the case. I have a draft, and have received some feedback from the sub group. I will finalise my draft and pass it to Akachi for his quality checks, and will aim to circulate it to the group by Thuirsday, so that I give you guys enough time to read through and challenge me. So Thursday, please check your mail boxes, and your feedback will be most welcome.
Luisa & Shumi to give up date. Forecasted finacial statemnets are done and the first valuation of the share using the lecturer recommended methods and also using our source at the stock exchange recommended methods. Visit to Uganda Clays limited went well, except for the finance manager not being able to see us. He will only be availble on the week of the 12th of July. We need to speak to him just to check on our assumptions about dividend distribution, more investment in capacity, etc in some of the methods used. Draft is being worked on and will be circulated after our meeting with the UCL finance manager. Spoke to Marianne no problem in handing the assignment on the 26th, but strong recomendation that no team member is going to attend the finance classes on the the week of the 5th, which I believe no Lion member will do that.--Luisaserra 16:23, 4 July 2010 (UTC)
So did you get written assurance that we wont be pernalised by the lecturer? I know UNISA will trun around and try to make it our problme, yuet they started all the mess of flip flopping the due dates.
Jeremiah, i do not have anything in writing but i have waht marianne spoke to me. I do not feel very confortable in asking for it in writing when the academic head has written that letter.--Luisaserra 16:33, 4 July 2010 (UTC)
This is UNISA we are dealing with, we need to be cautious, and to be able to cover our backs. I would urge you to formalise your telephone conversations through email - who knows what when things may chnage, and we will be left with no cover at all.....
Ofcourse, no Lion will be there for the 5th. SBL really needs to get their act in tune with the rest of the "efficient" world. As JC has asked, do we have a written confirmation from Marian or SBL that there will be no penalty?
Lions, i will speak again to Marianne and come back to you on it. When i spoke to her she even mentioned Kruger letter that prof. Serumaga will be watching who enters the classroom on those days, so any chnaces of plagiarism will be dealt with. I will request for a reply to my email, because I took the initiative of phoning since she was not responding to my email. I will give you all feed back on Monday.--Luisaserra 16:41, 4 July 2010 (UTC)
Hove, Victor and Kay go, please update progress.--Luisaserra 16:26, 4 July 2010 (UTC)
We are on course. We now have a pretty good agreement on the framework for strategy etc. There are three separate questions but we will make it in time. Our only challenge is the level of response on the interviews. We need them ASAP
Can you help me with the outsatnding team members that have not submitted the interviews so i can send an individual email to each one of them.--Luisaserra 16:31, 4 July 2010 (UTC)
We have seen the Monday deadline from Hove and a very strongly worded email - i can see the passion in that email from SAB group...
