Point 4&5

Guys, I am unhappy with the amount of communications doing the rounds, are you all communicating individually? Please ensure that you respond to all queries directed at you via email. Following on from that any comments/suggestions on how we deal with issues relating to:

Methods of communications. Response time on communications. Sign-off on documents and response time.

I am following the discussion. I will aim to respond on time to group emails. Maybe the biggest offenders may need a reprimand from the Project / Group Leader. We all have busy schedules, but we have to be effective in getting stuff done and on time.No excuse for failure chaps.

JEREMIAH CHAPHXANYA (talk)06:55, 16 March 2009

Maybe the best way to start with would be to name and shame offenders each time a deadline is not met on respodning. Just to counter bad habits of not communicating - if busy or travelling, then the leader must know

--Kay go 19:04, 15 March 2009 (UTC)may i be excused, i only managed to hustle an hour, it is going to be a challenge for me, to respond this week as i will be travelling a lot but as mentioned i'll try my best. i'm only back in Botswana on Tuesday 23rd please bear with me for this week, if i am unable to contribute effectively.

Great to have you here and you will be sent the minutes of todays meeting.

Enjoy the UK

Hermanus Louw (talk)07:06, 16 March 2009

the email is still the best communication method, if only members can respond on time. we need to have 24hour email response understanding, let all members bear that in mind and always check their emails regularly. that will solve a lot of the communications challenges we are having at the moment.

Document sign off can be done by members individually or hermanus can help with that when non timely response from a member will affect the project. we also need 24 hours deadline for document signoff.

Hi Hermanus, I understnd your frustrations, and as per Jeremiah email, maybe we need to highlit on a second email after the deadline who did not respond, then I can have a chat with the respective team member. This brings me to the point of assignment 911K contributions, I was tasked with Hove to do the assignment and all I got was an email and an sms stating I cannot connect to the internet, I suggested to Shungu to assign him to work wuth Kago, apparently he travelled to Zim, but he is getting a 100% contribution for the project, who gave him that mark?--Luisaserra 19:13, 15 March 2009 (UTC)

I put the marks in there, however I was not aware of any of these issues. I will contcat you on the phone tomorrow to discuss.

Hermanus Louw (talk)07:19, 16 March 2009

please don't forget to post the assignment on eds 2moro. tuesday is the due date.

Akachi Ngwu (talk)07:29, 16 March 2009

that is the point. we need to begin to punish non performance on part of members.

we can't make progress with this lackadaisical attitude of members.

what we in is a very seriuos business and must be treated as such.
