Dear Lions, it has been a vivid discussion in all assignments, i wish you all a lovely week and looking forward to meet with you next week.--Luisaserra 17:15, 13 June 2010 (UTC)
Thanks all, please see the date for the 2nd study school is 26-30 July. have a good week ahead. God bless
Enjoy watching the World cup guys. At least Ghana has won. It has been a pleasure to you all. Cheers.
Hove, Kay go and Victor any updates?--Luisaserra 17:08, 13 June 2010 (UTC)
We have started working on it. Our inter-group drafts should start circulating as of tommorrow.
Lions, we are over shooting the 60 minutes alotted for wiki discussion.
Ha-a you can be right but remember we have lost so we need to claw back such that we do not face daunting tasks come Exam time so as long as we can manage to sort our things there is no problem at all.
Regarding this assignment no progress has been made as all focus is on the 922N assignment, the minute the ball starts rolling on this assignment we will send the SOW--Luisaserra 16:54, 13 June 2010 (UTC)
The best is to have all the SOW such that while awaiting the required infor for 922 you will pondering what strategy to use in tackling the other assignment.
i suggest u come up the SOW now so as to have a focus on your strategy
Hove, I would like you to understnd that the situation has not been waiting a lot of research on the website has been happening about the Uganda Stock Exchange, etc. Trying to get contacts is not been waiting you talk to a lot of people to get to the right contact. Shumi has been highly involved in getting to different brokers to get information. Your perception of waiting that the postman will come with a letter with information to deliver is a misconception, so please bear with us has this has not been an easy one.--Luisaserra 17:04, 13 June 2010 (UTC)
All the same Luisa not all members are busy running around trying to get the required infor. Three people in a group should be able to beacuse doing assignments hurriedly is a good recipe for poor marks as we have seen in our assignments. Its not like people did not know what to do and how to do it but time factor was the major stumbling block. I still persist guys do the SOW asap such that we know and see the foundation.
ok folks...we'll avail one in the next couple of days --Shumimlingo 17:03, 13 June 2010 (UTC)
Akachi, Evelyn and Jeremiah, any progress updates you would like to give us?--Luisaserra 16:48, 13 June 2010 (UTC)
The SOW was done and sent out. I have started the analysis of Amazon, and yes, its on track, and will share my initial draft with my sub group.
Jeremiah, Akachi & Evelyn are you saying one person does the assignment? If so it is very dangerous because it will be easily discernable that it was done by one person. It should be a hybrid of ideas.
I agree.... this time its all on board! --Shumimlingo 16:58, 13 June 2010 (UTC)
you got it wrong Hove. JC is leading the assignment, other members will also make contributions as well as review the assignment.
Hove its one person who writes the stuff, the other guys have their sections, but I am leading, and have a main chubnk of the assignment. Its not a one man job - even you, we hope when our drfat goes out, you will respond with the same zest!!!
Hove, Kay go and Victor, can you please gives us your progress?--Luisaserra 16:34, 13 June 2010 (UTC)
We are working on it as previously communicated on last week's Wikichat. Just expect our first draft on the 24th of June.
Lucky you beause you will have a good present which will be the assignment.
my birthday gift for the group is 90% score on the assignment
now we have to find a way to pond you heavily wont we? <smile>.
Any requests that will involev participation of the other group memebers that you need, please bring these in advance--Luisaserra 16:39, 13 June 2010 (UTC)
All group members have to interview an expatriate manager. Kago will send you the guidelines anytime.Remember guys that this is urgent.
can we use the same maanger's we used on the Leadership assignment...if expatriate??
--Shumimlingo 16:45, 13 June 2010 (UTC)
Interviwe must have the questions you need, please send that on time, so we can deliver on time back--Luisaserra 16:45, 13 June 2010 (UTC)
Akachi, Evelyn and jeremiah, over to you on this update?--Luisaserra 16:22, 13 June 2010 (UTC)
I have circulated the SOW during the week, and will have a draft ready for the subgroup to scrutinise by 19 June 2010. Managed to download a number of articles on the the subject so I should have enough to go on for now. Please see question 2, which I copy "2. share the views of your group on the impact of national culture on leadership, particularly in South Africa. 30 MARKS ". WOuld it be possible for the bigger group to provide their insight so that we can incorporate our differenct view points?
I meant 22 June for the 1st draft to the subgroup - apologies
It is possible, but please make sure not to send it to me on docx--Luisaserra 16:30, 13 June 2010 (UTC)
we have done and sent out the SOW, on my part it's WIP.
Lions, SOW has finally been sent on your email address, please comment. Shumi will update on the battle to get the information for this assignment, over to you Shumi.--Luisaserra 15:58, 13 June 2010 (UTC)
- We managed to obtain the share prices for Uganda Clay over the past 7 years from a local stockbroker
- We've managed to establish a contact at Uganda Clays. Luisa should get us an appointment soon.
- We have a meeting with the Finance Manager from Rennaisance Stockbrokers (Uganda). Our plan is to obtain more market information (ie market returns), compare their valuation methods with ours, obtain advice on valuation techniques and any other info on Uganda Clays
- We're still to obtain financials on Uganda Clays; Uganda Clays has no website.
--Shumimlingo 16:07, 13 June 2010 (UTC)
thanks. if it is a listed company, the information should be available on the stock exchange where they are listed, and the information should be made available to the public, so their public relations or communications department should be able to assist.
I hear you Evelyn...The Uganda Stock Exchange is still fairly young and even public info is not so public....We'll make a plan though.
Guys let me declare upfront, this assignment is quite challenging and we need a brilliant mark. I believe it may be necessary to tap into the other Finance minds in the group. Can we keep you on stand by ...Jerry, Evelyn...
--Shumimlingo 16:16, 13 June 2010 (UTC)
I am on standby. I suggest you perhaps make your drafts available throughout so that I can run it by this friend of mine. He is a risk manager at a parastatal and has indicated that he will assist where he can. SO if we run it by him early on, he might be able to comment on whether we are on the right track. I will use whatever contacts i have to assist us in this, if it is fine with you.
Do you foresee getting the financials Shumi? Evelyn should continue trying to get Tiger Brands as well in case you fail to get the financials.
see my comments earlier and give me further direction please.
We should get the financialls Hove....Luisa's contact is the Finance Director and we're trusting he'll have them. I agree that Evelyn should parallel run the info requests from Tiger...just as a back up. Not to set up a meeting, but just to request info on share prices. financials etc
Kindly indicate your presence here. Luisa is still chairing this meeting i presume?
Dear Lions, I hope you had a lovely week. Wish you all the test results have been successful. Looking forward to have a chat with you in the next 20minutes on the progress of the different assignments.--Luisaserra 15:39, 13 June 2010 (UTC)
I read the comments and discussion of last week with interest. Please indicate whether you have now enlist another company for the 922 assignment, so that I notify my friend to ot make further enquiries on the information you have requested.
Evelyn, we are trying to get info on the local stock exchange on the companies. Shumi is actually doing that. I do not know how far your friend has been with the Tiger brand data. The concern is that we still do not have the whole data we need for the assignment, locally in Uganda or from Tiger Brands--Luisaserra 15:50, 13 June 2010 (UTC)
He has indicated that he will be able to assist, however, people will be working flexi hours for the duration of the world cup so we will have to be patient. I will be able to follow up tomorrow only. You also need to indicate whether we need to make an appointment to see the Risk manager at the company or perhaps forward interview questions and a draft of the assignment so that we request the input from the company. There are no guarantees of course, but the sooner we try and engage the company, the better.
Great Lions Iam on-line. How are you ladies( Evelyn & Luisa.
Hi Hove, I am well thanks, with the world on our doorstep, no reason to complain. how are you?
Mr. Hove....I hope you're well --Shumimlingo 15:57, 13 June 2010 (UTC)
I'm ready and roaring! --Shumimlingo 15:55, 13 June 2010 (UTC)
i felt it, i touched it and i'll always remember it, World-cup 2010 eng vs usa i was there.hello africa, tell me how you are doing...
