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...
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.
Our SoW was developed and available on this link http://www.wikieducator.org/EDSLIONS/weekly_discussions/Strategic_Management_Assignment_2
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.
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.
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...
Great....please do hammer it. We need the marks. Any news on our previous strategy mark? --Shumimlingo 16:38, 26 July 2009 (UTC)
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"
Hi Vic, I assume you're working on scanning those assignments. They would be good for correction --Shumimlingo 16:56, 26 July 2009 (UTC)
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.
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.
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.
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.
Thanks Jerry for the efforts. Is the final doc with formatting, ready to be circulated to members? --Shumimlingo 16:10, 26 July 2009 (UTC)
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.
please take a closer look at the management report, should'nt the report be from lions group? lions what do you think?
Akachi, The question talks of a board member. Essentially, i should refer to a board member and not my name. Good point.
