Akachi Ngwu (talk)06:20, 14 June 2010

Enjoy watching the World cup guys. At least Ghana has won. It has been a pleasure to you all. Cheers.

926S update

Hove, Kay go and Victor any updates?--Luisaserra 17:08, 13 June 2010 (UTC)

Luisaserra (talk)06:08, 14 June 2010

We have started working on it. Our inter-group drafts should start circulating as of tommorrow.

Hove (talk)06:12, 14 June 2010

Lions, we are over shooting the 60 minutes alotted for wiki discussion.

Akachi Ngwu (talk)06:12, 14 June 2010

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.

Hove (talk)06:16, 14 June 2010

agreed we have lost time, but we need to be informed where there will be time extensions on wiki discussion

Akachi Ngwu (talk)06:19, 14 June 2010

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)

Luisaserra (talk)05:54, 14 June 2010

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.

Hove (talk)06:00, 14 June 2010

I concur with Hove's point here.

Victor.mensah (talk)06:01, 14 June 2010

i suggest u come up the SOW now so as to have a focus on your strategy

Akachi Ngwu (talk)06:02, 14 June 2010

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)

Luisaserra (talk)06:04, 14 June 2010

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.

Hove (talk)06:10, 14 June 2010

ok folks...we'll avail one in the next couple of days --Shumimlingo 17:03, 13 June 2010 (UTC)

Shumimlingo (talk)06:03, 14 June 2010

924Q updtaes

Akachi, Evelyn and Jeremiah, any progress updates you would like to give us?--Luisaserra 16:48, 13 June 2010 (UTC)

Luisaserra (talk)05:48, 14 June 2010

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 CHAPHXANYA (talk)05:52, 14 June 2010

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.

Hove (talk)05:56, 14 June 2010

I agree.... this time its all on board! --Shumimlingo 16:58, 13 June 2010 (UTC)

Shumimlingo (talk)05:58, 14 June 2010

you got it wrong Hove. JC is leading the assignment, other members will also make contributions as well as review the assignment.

Akachi Ngwu (talk)05:58, 14 June 2010

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!!!

JEREMIAH CHAPHXANYA (talk)05:58, 14 June 2010

Oh. Ok. I will take your word. I understood its a one man band while the rest are doing the other assignment. I will take your word.

Hove (talk)06:03, 14 June 2010

deadline for my input is set for 20 June 2010

EVELYN (talk)06:00, 14 June 2010

923P updates

Hove, Kay go and Victor, can you please gives us your progress?--Luisaserra 16:34, 13 June 2010 (UTC)

Luisaserra (talk)05:34, 14 June 2010

We are working on it as previously communicated on last week's Wikichat. Just expect our first draft on the 24th of June.

Hove (talk)05:36, 14 June 2010

24th June is my birthday

Akachi Ngwu (talk)05:39, 14 June 2010

Lucky you beause you will have a good present which will be the assignment.

Hove (talk)05:41, 14 June 2010

my birthday gift for the group is 90% score on the assignment

Akachi Ngwu (talk)05:42, 14 June 2010

Thanks for your gift to us and accepting ours. I have received all my books now except Ethics. But i am not worried - i got one from somebody. What about you?

Victor.mensah (talk)05:48, 14 June 2010

now we have to find a way to pond you heavily wont we? <smile>.

Victor.mensah (talk)05:43, 14 June 2010

no shaking, hope u have recieved all ur study materials.

Akachi Ngwu (talk)05:46, 14 June 2010

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)

Luisaserra (talk)05:39, 14 June 2010

All group members have to interview an expatriate manager. Kago will send you the guidelines anytime.Remember guys that this is urgent.

Hove (talk)05:43, 14 June 2010

u need to be fast with the interview schedule

Akachi Ngwu (talk)05:44, 14 June 2010

can we use the same maanger's we used on the Leadership assignment...if expatriate??

--Shumimlingo 16:45, 13 June 2010 (UTC)

Shumimlingo (talk)05:45, 14 June 2010

You can not use the same because the intended information is different. Kago has a problem with his internet, however he will probably be able to email it to all of you before Tuesday. Its true we need to be swift in dispatching the questions.

Hove (talk)05:49, 14 June 2010

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)

Luisaserra (talk)05:45, 14 June 2010

ok, please give special attention to the comments made by the lecturer on eds.

EVELYN (talk)05:46, 14 June 2010

921M Update

Akachi, Evelyn and jeremiah, over to you on this update?--Luisaserra 16:22, 13 June 2010 (UTC)

Luisaserra (talk)05:22, 14 June 2010

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?

EVELYN (talk)05:26, 14 June 2010

I meant 22 June for the 1st draft to the subgroup - apologies

EVELYN (talk)05:28, 14 June 2010

correction noted.

Victor.mensah (talk)05:30, 14 June 2010

It is possible, but please make sure not to send it to me on docx--Luisaserra 16:30, 13 June 2010 (UTC)

Luisaserra (talk)05:30, 14 June 2010

yes, thanks, I will remember to save it in the format that you can open.

EVELYN (talk)05:32, 14 June 2010

I think your group should have your input when you or us feel that it needs some flesh we will then have to come up with our views

Hove (talk)05:30, 14 June 2010

we have done and sent out the SOW, on my part it's WIP.

Akachi Ngwu (talk)05:27, 14 June 2010

Thanks for the SOW team.

Victor.mensah (talk)05:30, 14 June 2010

922N update

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)

Luisaserra (talk)04:58, 14 June 2010


  • 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)

Shumimlingo (talk)05:07, 14 June 2010

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.

EVELYN (talk)05:10, 14 June 2010

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)

Shumimlingo (talk)05:16, 14 June 2010

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.

EVELYN (talk)05:19, 14 June 2010

Thanks Evelyn, we just need the financials and we can start on this immediately, your sugestion is accepoted--Luisaserra 16:21, 13 June 2010 (UTC)

Luisaserra (talk)05:21, 14 June 2010

ready to help anytime.....

JEREMIAH CHAPHXANYA (talk)05:20, 14 June 2010

Sounds good chaps....

JEREMIAH CHAPHXANYA (talk)05:11, 14 June 2010

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.

Hove (talk)05:12, 14 June 2010

see my comments earlier and give me further direction please.

EVELYN (talk)05:14, 14 June 2010

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

Shumimlingo (talk)05:19, 14 June 2010

a big challenge, indeed

Akachi Ngwu (talk)05:13, 14 June 2010

Thanks for the good progress made so far.

Victor.mensah (talk)05:24, 14 June 2010

Ok. Are you guys saying you will use any of the two companies? I think we should have the company before the end of the week so that you guys you can have apple time to work on it.

Hove (talk)05:08, 14 June 2010

Kindly indicate your presence here. Luisa is still chairing this meeting i presume?

Victor.mensah (talk)02:36, 14 June 2010


Im online.

EVELYN (talk)03:31, 14 June 2010

hi lions....

JEREMIAH CHAPHXANYA (talk)05:05, 14 June 2010

great to have you on the wiki--Luisaserra 16:06, 13 June 2010 (UTC)

Luisaserra (talk)05:06, 14 June 2010

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)

Luisaserra (talk)04:39, 14 June 2010

Hi Luisa

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 (talk)04:46, 14 June 2010

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)

Luisaserra (talk)04:50, 14 June 2010

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.

EVELYN (talk)04:54, 14 June 2010

Great Lions Iam on-line. How are you ladies( Evelyn & Luisa.

Hove (talk)04:49, 14 June 2010

Hi Hove, I am well thanks, with the world on our doorstep, no reason to complain. how are you?

EVELYN (talk)04:51, 14 June 2010

Not complaining Evelyn. It was lovely to watch the Welcome concert.

Hove (talk)05:01, 14 June 2010

Mr. Hove....I hope you're well --Shumimlingo 15:57, 13 June 2010 (UTC)

Shumimlingo (talk)04:57, 14 June 2010

Very well thank you Shumi. Otherwise how is Uganda?

Hove (talk)05:00, 14 June 2010

Hove, I am cool, looking forward to our discussions--Luisaserra 16:02, 13 June 2010 (UTC)

Luisaserra (talk)05:02, 14 June 2010


I'm ready and roaring! --Shumimlingo 15:55, 13 June 2010 (UTC)

Shumimlingo (talk)04:55, 14 June 2010

Hi Shumi, trust that you are well also

EVELYN (talk)04:56, 14 June 2010

Kay go (talk)05:10, 14 June 2010

It would have been nice to hook up somehow. However, I am glad you had a great time. we attended a party at Montecasino in JHB last night and the english and usa fans were excuberant after the game.
