SOW has been sent to the Lions, today. Shungu has been challenged with internet connections, she is trying to get a modem--Luisaserra 16:46, 20 June 2010 (UTC)

Luisaserra (talk)16:46, 20 June 2010

EVELYN (talk)16:48, 20 June 2010
 

thanks for the sow.

Akachi Ngwu (talk)16:50, 20 June 2010
 

shungu has been challenged with internet issues before eve was adam's mistress, before christ created christmas... may i suggest that she compensates her continued absence by a weekly email to everyone that she has gone through the wiki-discussion and make comments, so that we can still feel that she is a part of us.

Kay go (talk)16:51, 20 June 2010

Kay go, that has already been discussed with her, that is why she is trying to get a new modem. I will again speak to her about the way she needs to make her presence felt in the team.--Luisaserra 16:55, 20 June 2010 (UTC)

Luisaserra (talk)16:55, 20 June 2010

oh ok, is there any way we can help, is it now only that she is looking for one?

Kay go (talk)16:59, 20 June 2010

Kay go, after I speak to her what i am expecting is that she will explain herself to the team and let all of us know the way forward with her presence at the wikichat, it cannot be resolved now, ok--Luisaserra 17:01, 20 June 2010 (UTC)

Luisaserra (talk)16:49, 20 June 2010

we had our conference call earlier, as measure to counter our falling behind, we have agreed to catch up on the 923 assignment for the first half of this week. by wednesday we plan on identifying an appropriate case study for 926 as this forms the nucleus of the assignment, and we'll progress from there.

Kay go (talk)16:56, 20 June 2010
 

Akachi, Evelyn, Jeremiah, please give us an update. I would like to take the opportunitty to congratulate the team on the first assignment mark.--Luisaserra 16:34, 20 June 2010 (UTC)

JC has circulated the first draft to the team, though we need members input wrt Amazon.com case study

Akachi Ngwu (talk)16:37, 20 June 2010

Does any group member have access to Amazon .com case study? its part of the assignment analysis

Akachi Ngwu (talk)16:39, 20 June 2010

Good question, and thanks for asking - would really appreciate if anyone has seen it. I will drop an emiail to the lecturre tto see what he says on that too?

JEREMIAH CHAPHXANYA (talk)16:41, 20 June 2010

EVELYN (talk)16:41, 20 June 2010

JEREMIAH CHAPHXANYA (talk)16:45, 20 June 2010

We are on track, our initial cut is with the sub group. We will continue to polish it up, and challenge ourselves. Hopef in the coming week, we can have something decent for the whole group to see and challenge. Pls confirm if anyone has seen the case straudy for Amazon.com? I have had a few response to my email question on the case study, and i appreciate.

Luisaserra (talk)16:30, 20 June 2010

thanks, we look forward to it.

Kay go (talk)16:45, 20 June 2010
 

just saw the questionnaire now. A quick one, is there any barrier on who to interview? must the person be in a senior position?

Akachi Ngwu (talk)16:31, 20 June 2010

it has to be an expatriate manager.

Kay go (talk)16:36, 20 June 2010
 
 

Firstly, on behalf of the SABs i would like to apologise for the inconvinience which we might have caused because we promised to email the questionaire latest Tuesday but it was only emailed today. We are on track. We had a conference call between the three of us and we will manage to give the 1st draft by the 24th as promised. We need you guys to speed with the interviews such that we put our things together in time. Again my apology!!

Hove (talk)16:27, 20 June 2010

thanks for the questionnaires, it might be really challenging to get people to attend to it in such a short space of time though, please make allowances for possible delays.

EVELYN (talk)16:29, 20 June 2010
 

What does SAB stand for? thought you were all lioness....Lol

JEREMIAH CHAPHXANYA (talk)16:30, 20 June 2010

Luisaserra (talk)16:15, 20 June 2010
  • Met with the Finance Manager of Renaissance Stockbrokers Uganda
  • Received the last required share price information i.e. performance of the market index
  • Brokers advised that they can share some valuations with us and advise on the Lions final valuation of Uganda Clay.
  • Brokers advised that they have a library where we can obtain Financials for Uganda Clays. We will visit it early this week.
  • Assignment is underway....detailed critiquing on draft 1 will be needed from the Lions if we are to obtain 80%

--Shumimlingo 16:17, 20 June 2010 (UTC)

Shumimlingo (talk)16:17, 20 June 2010

Kay go (talk)16:19, 20 June 2010
 

I am happy that you are making good process on this company, as I am not making headway on this end. I guess we then go for Uganda Clays. well done

Akachi Ngwu (talk)16:20, 20 June 2010
 

Good progress, hope we can all play our part to improve on the document once issued out.

Luisa, did you see my email regarding my friend's attempt to source more detailed info? the company is not keen to divulge any information other than what is published on the website. The lecturer did emphasise during study school 1 that we should only use information which is for public consumption and not risk using insider information which.

EVELYN (talk)16:18, 20 June 2010

Evelyn, we are progressing well on the information side, although now Shumi and I have to physically go to the brokers library and photocopy annual reports for ugnada clays that are not in electronic form.I would not worry anymore about Tiger brands, thanks for the support. I would like though to send to you the draft report for you to get another prespective from your parastatl analyst friend.--Luisaserra 16:22, 20 June 2010 (UTC)

Luisaserra (talk)16:22, 20 June 2010

Sure, he will be more than happy to look it over and give some perspective.

Goodafternoon Hove, how are you?

EVELYN (talk)15:51, 20 June 2010

Very well thank you Evelyn. Are u well?

Hove (talk)15:59, 20 June 2010

yes thanks, it is very cold, but the world cup visitors says this is mild winter compared to what they are exposed to.

EVELYN (talk)16:03, 20 June 2010

Botswana is not cold for the past 2 days. Do u think Bafana Bafana will manage to go into the next round?

Hove (talk)16:05, 20 June 2010

I attetnd church with a journalist of a popular sports magazine, he is of the opinion that Bafana will not be able to win France, and will be knocked out of the world cup on Tuesday. So we will have to wait and see, and perhaps PRAY
