The fist assignment (Executive Project) seems similar to our previous assignments ie Its a research based assignment. Points of discussion are:

  1. How do we split the work load of the assignment between the 9 of us? Do we use sub-groups, do we maintain the 2010 sub-groups, can we nominate an assignment leader & secretary who will steer us on the assignment & compile the document.
  2. Last year we had the challenge of quality checking. Most assignments we not revised & proof tested before handing in. How do we ensure a quality document this time round.

my suggestion is that we revert to our MBL 1 format as well as strictly adhering to our group charter. the format for MBL 2 gave room to several lapses where group members did not participate actively to group assignment. We can see that our had a dismay performance in our MBL 2 assignments.

Thanks Akachi,

Valid point, our marks declined seriously last year. This time we only have 1 assignment similar to those of last year. How would we split the work load...into 9 different parts? Would it be feasiblle--Shumimlingo 16:41, 16 January 2011 (UTC)

Sorry guys l am a bit rusty anyway l go for the idea of reverting to MBL1 system it gave us all an opportunity to critically look at the assignment and also had a dash of teamwork in it.--Shungunyoni 16:45, 16 January 2011 (UTC)

Ok guys you points have been taken into account. Without a quorum we can't decide. We will decide on e-mail.

The second point is the selection of an assignment leader. There are 2 assignments, the first assignment which is typical of what we're used to and the second assignment which is the field study. Do you have any suggestion for assignment leader and assignment secretary for Assignment 1--Shumimlingo 16:52, 16 January 2011 (UTC)

I think we need the secretary since wehave the Group Leader such that heresumes the duties of chairman. Just a thought!!!

Akachi Nominates Evelyn (Assignment Leader for Assignment 1) & Kago (Assignment Secretary for Assignment 1) Although they are both doing sups, I will contact them to see if they are in agreement and then put forward to the group.--Shumimlingo 17:01, 16 January 2011 (UTC)

i nominate Evelyn as asignment leader for assignment 1 and Kago as secretary

Leadership a bit tricky now since some members are waiting for their results. Results will not take that long to come out.or among us are there any volunteers. l am still a bush girl l am reachable today because it is a public holiday here--Shungunyoni 16:57, 16 January 2011 (UTC)

so what are our take home points

Akachi Ngwu (talk)05:09, 17 January 2011

guys, i think we have a quorum for this meeting as five of us are online

Akachi Ngwu (talk)04:59, 17 January 2011

we must all make contributions to the assignment, that will not necessarily mean spliting the assignment into nine parts. once we agree on the organization for the project we can assign tasks to each member with deadline for submission

Akachi Ngwu (talk)04:45, 17 January 2011
  1. Ackachi may simply be bluntly right here. I believe that with fewer subjects to handle, an all hands on deck may be better for us.
  2. What we need is A LOT of time for review of documents and contributions from everybody to allow for more contributions and quality checks - most importantly with referencing too.

Ok.Although iam a bit late i think you would allow to contribute constructively. I think we just need to apportion sub groups and combine the individual sub groups contributions into a formal documents. However as highlighted above we have neglected the quality control part which we need to thoroughly do this time around However i think choosing the chairman and secretary could help us in that there will some sort of co-ordination.

welcome Hove

Akachi Ngwu (talk)04:52, 17 January 2011

You have been quite my brother. How are doing and the family?

Hove (talk)04:56, 17 January 2011

Thanks Hove, this sounds quite practical. If I get you correctly, everyone should contribute to the assignment, but under subgroups. I think this may work and is in line with Akachi's suggestion. Do you have a suggestion for an Assignment leader & secretary for assignment 1--Shumimlingo 16:57, 16 January 2011 (UTC)

Shumimlingo (talk)04:57, 17 January 2011

the discussion is open for other members suggestion, i believe we need a bit lot of team work for the project

Akachi Ngwu (talk)04:50, 17 January 2011

(Comment.gif: I have edited the points to a numbered list so that we can discuss accordingly)
