EPM Assignment Part c

Hove you guys started on partc

JEREMIAH CHAPHXANYA (talk)16:53, 2 May 2011

Yes Sir. Still working on it.

Hove (talk)16:57, 2 May 2011

Great mate. Keep us updated.

JEREMIAH CHAPHXANYA (talk)17:06, 2 May 2011

Since the draft has been sent is it possible to havea look on it and possibly come back to wiki or skype at 20h30 SA time?

Hove (talk)17:08, 2 May 2011

EPM Assignment Part b

Views on tabular formart presented by JC/ Calvin

JEREMIAH CHAPHXANYA (talk)16:20, 2 May 2011

I think its fine. A guaranteed "A" for effort. My only concern is that there are certain pages that have blank columns and it makes it look a bit weird ie pages 22-24. I'm aware that the topic would have been on the previous pages, but nonetheless the blank pages look weird. Victor can you help us out with your renowned presentation skills on this? --Shumimlingo 16:26, 2 May 2011 (UTC)

There were 2 versions - one from JC and the second one from Calvin. My intention was to limit stuff in the tables, and then expand on the narrative section. However Calvin has merged all into the table. We have to make as decision on which one is better for our goal - both in terms of better presentation, and also ensuring that we stay within the 20 page limit. There is need to reduce the stuff, and key would be to ensure that we dont lose important stuff.

JEREMIAH CHAPHXANYA (talk)16:32, 2 May 2011

JC, my points far below can guide. Using both will be far more helpful.

Any thoughts on the version presented in the draft? I have only exchnaged ideas with Calvin, the rest of the team has been quiet. Not sure if people reviewed it or not?

Are the 3 of you on skype right now? My name is admirechaps.

JEREMIAH CHAPHXANYA (talk)16:28, 2 May 2011

Guys Iam sorry iam late:

These are my recommendations:

1. Reduce the amount of tabular staff a little bit. 2. The first part is too long it needs to reduced. 3. We have focussed more on marking guidelines.Need to focus more onthe questions and addressing the guidelines. 4. Reduce the staff contained in the table. 5. JC had substantially reduced staff i think we should reduce further.

Hove (talk)16:40, 2 May 2011

Agreed Hove. My intention was

JEREMIAH CHAPHXANYA (talk)16:46, 2 May 2011

If you look on Calvin's staff he has added some and re-arranged the EPM fundamentals according to which one should come first. I think we should also reduce the first part to minimal lengths.Its way way to long.

Hove (talk)16:51, 2 May 2011
 

Agreed to reducing stuff in table, and adding a narrative section. Would have been nice to Calvin on board

JEREMIAH CHAPHXANYA (talk)16:51, 2 May 2011

Cool

I have seen thew table.

  1. Now getting a bit worried that the naratives INSIDE the table might be getting a little bit too much. Can we consider another strategy where for instance we LIST the reccomendations only in the table but in a before/later narative, be put the reccomendations in a prose form as they currently come and then add the justifications?
  2. Some like point one do not come with justifications

Anybody online? Been waiting for minutes for the chair to start discussions.

Victor.mensah (talk)16:13, 2 May 2011

Hi Victor

JEREMIAH CHAPHXANYA (talk)16:14, 2 May 2011

We should give the other team members 5 mmins and see if they show up. If not we can just call it a day.

JEREMIAH CHAPHXANYA (talk)16:16, 2 May 2011

ok. What do you think of the table format on section 2.

Welcome Shumi and JC. The holidays have been uneventfull, and that is good for me. I have just started reading change management and will attempt to read through the assignment for finance also. Its really going to be a very crazy week.
