925R Updates

Lions unfortunately I do not have updates on this assignment. You have all seen the email from Shungu, I could not get hold of her on phone, I have sent emails and hope she will respond when she is back from the remote areas of Malawi wher she is on an assignmnet--Luisaserra 16:48, 27 June 2010 (UTC)

Luisaserra (talk)16:48, 27 June 2010

do we have the luxury of time to wait for her to come back? i think your team should have another look on her leading the assignment, probably either you or shumi should lead the assignment.

Akachi Ngwu (talk)16:51, 27 June 2010

Lions, i am waiting that this week she will update something. Akachi it is not possible to take this assignment as of now, because all the focus from I and Shumi are on the 922N assignment--Luisaserra 16:54, 27 June 2010 (UTC)

Luisaserra (talk)16:54, 27 June 2010

yes, i completely agree with you but can we afford to continue waiting for her. we have to remember we scored very low on the 1st assignment, so we need to make up with this one

Akachi Ngwu (talk)16:56, 27 June 2010
 
 

can't say i'm suprised...all i can say is if she doesn't give us an expat response marks are going...

Kay go (talk)16:51, 27 June 2010

Regarding penalties, this will be consulted and the wikichats are the proof to the team to make the decision if Shungu's contribution will be revised. Again like waht I have said to Akachi let's wait this week and check her response.--Luisaserra 16:56, 27 June 2010 (UTC)

Luisaserra (talk)16:56, 27 June 2010

ok! but to forewarn is to foreprepare...right?

Kay go (talk)17:00, 27 June 2010

I do not understand, please explain--Luisaserra 17:01, 27 June 2010 (UTC)

Luisaserra (talk)17:01, 27 June 2010

if you give a warning or caution in advance, it gives the warnee an opportunity to prepare and avoid the warned eventuality...is that better?

926S Updates

kay go, Hove and Victor any updates on this assignment--Luisaserra 16:52, 27 June 2010 (UTC)

Luisaserra (talk)16:52, 27 June 2010

we were a bit overwhelm with the strategy assignment, we have not made much progress on this yet. we have estimated to get it out of the way this week and make headway on this one

Kay go (talk)16:56, 27 June 2010

How are you dividng the work amongst the 3 of you for not progressing on this assignment?--Luisaserra 17:04, 27 June 2010 (UTC)

Luisaserra (talk)17:04, 27 June 2010

the leader of the assignment should be able to give an update

Akachi Ngwu (talk)17:06, 27 June 2010

I think Kago had fully answered you guys unless if you want him to lie.

Hove (talk)17:10, 27 June 2010
 

It does not mean we haven't done anything. We have done theoretical work only so according to us we can not applaud that and report that we have done a tremendous job. Do not worry we will be there.

Hove (talk)17:09, 27 June 2010
 

we look at the question, come up with a framework on how to answer the question and then each member is given a section of the question to research and come up with an answer and it has worked wonders in the past, and we not only an email away but also a phone call away...thats how we do it. for us to come up with a framework we all need to have a good understnding of the content required to answer the question. it just so happens that there are volumes to read for the strategy assignment, but no need to panic yet.

Kay go (talk)17:11, 27 June 2010
 

Lions, thanks for the meeting. Ive got to go. Have a blessed week and all the best to the teams with finalising the assignments especially the 922 team.

924Q updates

Akachi, Jeremaih, Evelyn any updates?--Luisaserra 16:35, 27 June 2010 (UTC)

Luisaserra (talk)16:35, 27 June 2010

WIP, the draft is beign circulated amongst the teaM members

Akachi Ngwu (talk)16:39, 27 June 2010

Did you find the case study about Amazon?--Luisaserra 16:42, 27 June 2010 (UTC)

Luisaserra (talk)16:42, 27 June 2010

yes we did, Evelyn provided the team with the case study

Akachi Ngwu (talk)16:44, 27 June 2010

Evelyn always coming to the rescue. Thanks for your effort.

923P updates

Kay go, Hove and Victor, please update--Luisaserra 16:23, 27 June 2010 (UTC)

Luisaserra (talk)16:23, 27 June 2010

Come to think of it. Luisa, Victor, Shumi & Shungu are expatrait managers, can we solicit responses from them on the assignment.

Akachi Ngwu (talk)16:28, 27 June 2010

Ive forwarded the completed questionnaire today. Let me know if it meets your requirements please.

EVELYN (talk)16:29, 27 June 2010

What about the rest guys. Please kindly do us a favour by sending those questionairs.

Hove (talk)16:33, 27 June 2010
 

i just saw the alert, will let you know.

Kay go (talk)16:34, 27 June 2010
 

We are still waiting for your responses guys. The sooner you send those responses the quicker we will be able to send the 1st draft.

Hove (talk)16:30, 27 June 2010

WIP, but can we interview our group members? since they fall within our sample.

Akachi Ngwu (talk)16:32, 27 June 2010

Its not possible because you will the responses suit what you want. Get someone who is not a group member. Do u tell me there are no expats in Nigeria?

Hove (talk)16:35, 27 June 2010
 
 

Great Idea Akachi....but I worry that we may not give "natural" reponses as we know the question and may give biased answers. I think a stranger to the 923 assignment would do better

--Shumimlingo 16:31, 27 June 2010 (UTC)

Shumimlingo (talk)16:31, 27 June 2010
 

Akachi, I also thought of that because I am struggling, my boss is on leave and I sent him an email but up to now no response. But i believe the idea is to get not group people to reply to that after reading the books but to get an opportunitty to analyse a person on that situation that is not under the SBL assignments, that is my thoughts, Lions your comments.--Luisaserra 16:31, 27 June 2010 (UTC)

Luisaserra (talk)16:31, 27 June 2010
 

we underestimated the data we had to go through to properly answer the question hence there has been some delays in that regard but rest assured we are on top of it. we still await expat responses kindly submit these soonest.

Kay go (talk)16:32, 27 June 2010
 

922N Updates

Luisa, Shumi to give updates--Luisaserra 16:13, 27 June 2010 (UTC)

Luisaserra (talk)16:13, 27 June 2010

please read the comments from the lecturer on eds with regards to using information which is not contained in the published reports. He is of the opinion that the info in the Risk manager's report should suffice.

EVELYN (talk)16:15, 27 June 2010

Thanks Evelyn. We took note of the comments. --Shumimlingo 16:17, 27 June 2010 (UTC)

Shumimlingo (talk)16:17, 27 June 2010
 
  • The assignment is underway
  • SBL has moved the due date forward from the 29th to the 5th. That came as a big surprise...but we’re doing our best.
  • Inspite of information delays, we are working our hardest to get a draft to the Lions by Wednesday for an evaluation.

--Shumimlingo 16:16, 27 June 2010 (UTC)

Shumimlingo (talk)16:16, 27 June 2010

I spoke with Marianne explaining to her the challenges in getting the info in Uganda, she told me to put it on an email. We still do not have the 2009 annual report it was not available on the stock exchange library. We are going to Ugnada Clays on Wednesday, waiting confirmation on Monday to visit. I will keep you posted on progress.--Luisaserra 16:21, 27 June 2010 (UTC)

921M updates

Hove, can you give us some updates on the 921M progress?--Luisaserra 16:06, 27 June 2010 (UTC)

Luisaserra (talk)16:06, 27 June 2010

Evelyn will do that,our team is handling the assignment.

Akachi Ngwu (talk)16:07, 27 June 2010

The first draft is out to the subteam, although a few days after it was due. I am still on track though to have the draft circulated to the bigger group by 29th as scheduled. thanks

EVELYN (talk)16:10, 27 June 2010
 

Hove, once again apologies. This is for Evelyn, Akachi and Jeremiah--Luisaserra 16:14, 27 June 2010 (UTC)
