Closing remarks

Akachi: that was the best i could get at present will see if i can get what you have requested, but chances are you'll have to work with the comprehensive one.

JC: i will be checking my emails periodically if there is anywhere where there is some ambiguity please email and raise the alarm for prompt assistance.

please ensure to email Victor all the necessary by tonight so that when he gets to the office at 6am he can finalise the MBL915 and upload by 12, before he travels.

so Mr.Hove forward all the comments to Victor before you go to sleep tonight and lets be patient with the guys they might not meet the proposed deadlines, however I shall make sure to keep reminding them to submit.

Shungu wanted to know about our live meeting in Jozi, i think we will discuss this in detail at next week's meeting.

Kay go (talk)19:46, 17 May 2009

good night guys. wishing all a very pleasant week ahead.

Economics Assignment SOW

Kay go (talk)18:50, 17 May 2009

yes, have taken a look at it.

Akachi Ngwu (talk)18:57, 17 May 2009
 

Iam sorry Cde Chair, guys i still feel the MBL15 needs anaalysis please refer to the paragraph i refered above. Iam sorry to take u aback

Hove (talk)18:57, 17 May 2009

please elaborate, Victor are you still there?

Kay go (talk)19:00, 17 May 2009

Sorry, i was confused whether to reply here or not. Kindly lets reply to posts/thread on time.

On the MBL915 Assignments, i understand ALL your comments. Hove, as Jeremiah has promised to do, kindly put all your comments/edits/suggestions and send to me via email tonight. I will be in the office from 6am tommorrow to work on this assignment and upload before i travel.

Victor.mensah (talk)19:24, 17 May 2009
 
 

i have attached the budget speech please if you require any more information let me know so i can avail it promptly. we, myself and Hove, wish to have the assignment uploaded by the 29th so please work with us accordingly so we can achieve this.

Kay go (talk)18:58, 17 May 2009

yes, kago the budget speech seems to be the comprehensive budget. can we get the sectoral breakdown?

Akachi Ngwu (talk)19:05, 17 May 2009
 

its more of practical than theory, may have to look at the deadline again.

Akachi Ngwu (talk)18:58, 17 May 2009

Agreed Akachi. The deadlines are too tight to be honest.

the actual deadline for submission is on the 2nd of June the Tuesday when we are at study school.

Kay go (talk)19:03, 17 May 2009

can we then look at May 22, 2009

Akachi Ngwu (talk)19:07, 17 May 2009

the reason we proposed the 20th was because the 21st is a holiday so this would give us enough time to compile all your contributions and work on them with minimal work related distractions... so can we rather move it to the 21st noon CAT?

Kay go (talk)19:17, 17 May 2009

work schedule is very tight for me. as i said we will try our best to beat the deadline. iam working with victor and shumi.

Akachi Ngwu (talk)19:38, 17 May 2009
 

Akachi - - this is an aside: but can you pls check on Utang if she is online? If she is, we need to see her posts/replies. Kindly remind her to keep refreshing her page after every two minutes or so.

Shungu - - Are you online?

Victor.mensah (talk)19:28, 17 May 2009

she is not. having internet challenges.

Akachi Ngwu (talk)19:39, 17 May 2009
 

what are saying to shungu's querries regarding ARRIVAL for study school.

Akachi Ngwu (talk)19:46, 17 May 2009
 
 

Guys i think the timetable is suitable taking into cognisance that our last day to be able to post the assignment EDS is the 29th according to the SOW. I think Friady the 30th might be the last day because Saturday we will be laeving to SA so we cannot post it

Hove (talk)19:09, 17 May 2009
 

advise on where we can exercise some laxity, which deadline should we move forward? we will be available on email, so feel free to clog our emails should you have any premonition of doom...

Kay go (talk)19:09, 17 May 2009

we are not praying for doom, combining this stuff with work is quite challenging. we will try our best to beat the deadline

Akachi Ngwu (talk)19:12, 17 May 2009

That fine Mr Ngwu. But if we extend it to the 22nd thats fine.Have all the other guys logged off?

Hove (talk)19:24, 17 May 2009

wondering as well, cos no one seem to be charting again.

Akachi Ngwu (talk)19:26, 17 May 2009
 

I am online and following yo comments!!!

Akachi Ngwu (talk)19:29, 17 May 2009
 

Kago - my point is on flexibility and clarity if the times can be moved. If not, well we have to comply mate.

MBL 915 Assignment

i assume, we have all managed to browse through the 3rd Draft, any comments?

Kay go (talk)18:14, 17 May 2009

Sorry guys I have been slow in my review. however I have the follwoing points to make: 1. 32 PAGES looks like its too long to me? How many pages is the limit / target? 2. The SWOT analysis is weak - we may need to do a table and sum up key points. I can add some points on that.

JEREMIAH CHAPHXANYA (talk)18:16, 17 May 2009

We are required to deliver a minimum of 20pages with no clear limit. The current document is 26 real peages. Your suggestion about the SWOT analisis will be helpful. When will that come in?

Victor.mensah (talk)18:19, 17 May 2009

I will do it tonight and send you a copy. You can polish it up.

JEREMIAH CHAPHXANYA (talk)18:22, 17 May 2009

thnaks JC

l can submit my comments if there are any tomorrow l have problems with my yahoo today, l do not know why.--Shungunyoni 18:23, 17 May 2009 (UTC)

Shungunyoni (talk)18:23, 17 May 2009
 

Akachi, Shungu, Taurai any comments? thanks Jerry for for the contribution.

Kay go (talk)18:25, 17 May 2009

it seems everyone else is quite happy with the draft Victor. please if you do not have any comments kindly state "no comments" so we know that we are on the same page and can progress quicker

Kay go (talk)18:36, 17 May 2009
 

I think if we utilise a table that will be a ploy to reduce the length of the assignment, however i do not think that will give us the opportunity to put an indepth analysis of the environment as expected. Lets just focus on improving the way it is. It might be the flow of the information which has a problem. I going through the draft while participating on Wiki so i do no have much to contribute.

Hove (talk)18:39, 17 May 2009

Hove - point taken. I leave that to u guys to decide, all I aim to do is to expand and highlight key point on the swot analysis.

JEREMIAH CHAPHXANYA (talk)18:43, 17 May 2009
 
 

Thanks Kaygo, i guess that will be all the comments from members on this. As a note i will be doing final edits, remove all notes unclaimed/without sources and hoping to do final upload by 12noon moro GMT.

Thanks to you all.

Victor.mensah (talk)18:36, 17 May 2009

Akachi Ngwu (talk)18:40, 17 May 2009

Victor.mensah (talk)18:43, 17 May 2009

Jeremiah & Victor how are you? Victor the attachment which i saw is an image. Have you seen that?

Hove (talk)18:02, 17 May 2009

No Hove. If there was an image included, it should be a corporate one attached to all our mails but a Word document was also included. At least Shumi and Kaygo were able to download and has just sent me his comments.
