Edited by 0 users.
Last edit: 16:18, 26 July 2009

We have commenced work on MBL915 Assignment, and I have just emailed you our initial workings a few minutes back please read through the case and browse through what we have done thus far. We will over the course of this week send the 1st draft for your comments. it is an interesting case study...

Kay go (talk)16:18, 26 July 2009

Kago I have a few questions: 1. Do we have an SoW? 2. From the doc I am not clear on the questions.Of course i will need to read the case, but perhapos you could help by giving a bit more detail on the question we are addressing.

JEREMIAH CHAPHXANYA (talk)16:26, 26 July 2009

it a case on OfficeMax, Inc. is the third-largest office supply chain in the United States. you will find the question at the link. you are to give a recommendations to the CEO, or formulate a strategy to counter the potential mrger of the top two companies in the office supply industry, office depot & Staples.

Kay go (talk)16:35, 26 July 2009
 

You guys have done a lot of work on it already. Well done.

Utang (talk)16:28, 26 July 2009

Thanks Utang and JC for your comments. The case is a rather old one and to us not seriously structured properly. But we shall sail through. It requires a lot of subjective opinions and justifications so we expect the group to read the case and criticize us heavily next week.

Victor.mensah (talk)16:38, 26 July 2009
 

thanks Utang our intention is to produce an 8o% plus assignment, please we welcome all your praises and constructive critism... it is quite discomforting to proceed with it, without knowledge of how we did on the first assignment does anyone know or heard anything about this? Luisa? Shungu is having trouble with her internet connection, please excuse her...if you do not see her comments...

Kay go (talk)16:43, 26 July 2009

Yes Kago, your owe the group an 80% score dude, failure of which we will apply sharia law on you and Victor.Lol Good effort guys

JEREMIAH CHAPHXANYA (talk)16:56, 26 July 2009

did i say 80%..."i fear too early for my mind misgives"

Shumimlingo (talk)16:38, 26 July 2009

I dont see the marks out yet. I have also not received the marked document so we are still stuck and blind here on the 2nd Assignment as we dont know here "taste"

Victor.mensah (talk)16:42, 26 July 2009

I just checked "myUnisa" again, it is still not out.

Victor.mensah (talk)16:49, 26 July 2009

Kay go (talk)16:51, 26 July 2009

Hi Vic, I assume you're working on scanning those assignments. They would be good for correction --Shumimlingo 16:56, 26 July 2009 (UTC)

Shumimlingo (talk)16:56, 26 July 2009

Yes please. They will be out this week. The print format was disturbing me but i will find a way round it.

Victor.mensah (talk)16:59, 26 July 2009
 

A big thank you to everyone who contributed on 914 - and good support from Akachi and Utang. I hope we get a decent score. Thanks LIONS.

Please note the intention is to upload the Finance assignment tomorrow 27th July, so the next 10 mins will be allocated to your final comments.

Kay go (talk)16:06, 26 July 2009

Thanks Kago. Subsequent to my chat with Victor, I have had a few emails with some nice comments. I will make those chnages and send the final doc to Victro tonite so that tomorrow it can be uploaded.

Thanks for all the contributions.

JEREMIAH CHAPHXANYA (talk)16:09, 26 July 2009

Thanks Jeremiah and team. I will be on hand to ensure that we get the document in shape and uploaded by tomorrow as scheduled.

Good work guys.

Victor.mensah (talk)16:14, 26 July 2009
 

jerry, travelled out of Lagos during the week. just came back this afternoon, unfortunately did not have internet access, based on your first draft the attempt on the assignment is highly commendable, will take a more deatiled look tonight.

Akachi Ngwu (talk)16:17, 26 July 2009

No worries Akachi. I have had some excellent input from Utang. Please feel free to provide any additional feedback. We can only make the document better.

JEREMIAH CHAPHXANYA (talk)16:21, 26 July 2009
 
 

Thanks Jerry for the efforts. Is the final doc with formatting, ready to be circulated to members? --Shumimlingo 16:10, 26 July 2009 (UTC)

Shumimlingo (talk)16:10, 26 July 2009

We have a doc which is in good shape - all i need is to put minor changes that i received from the group. I will cc eveyone so that you can also have a final look. But we are in good shape -n its all cleared by the core group.

JEREMIAH CHAPHXANYA (talk)16:14, 26 July 2009

please take a closer look at the management report, should'nt the report be from lions group? lions what do you think?

Akachi Ngwu (talk)16:23, 26 July 2009

Akachi, The question talks of a board member. Essentially, i should refer to a board member and not my name. Good point.

JEREMIAH CHAPHXANYA (talk)16:28, 26 July 2009

Maybe we should just use the group name to represent the board member.
