Reflections on Debating

Although its been a couple of days since the debate which took place in class, i would just like to share my thoughts about it...

Frankly, it was a very rewarding and stimulating process...And this is for a number of reasons..

Firstly,because on the one hand we explored a completely new field and got some very good insights about it..So it terms of knowledge generation it fulfilled its goal..

Then the fact that we all sat around a table...Discussed our thoughts with the rest of our team mates was ideal in terms of knowledge sharing...But perhaps the most substantial knowledge sharing took place during the actual debate...When each team stood up and supported their views...It was interesting to hear the other side and especially listen to their arguments...It was not just a "I believe this...." it went a step beyond that by being  a "I beileive this, because..."Meaning that there was solid grounding supporting the views... 

I think it was stimulating, because both teams were passionate about defending their side...There was a lot of commitment and dedication by all the memebers of the teams to contribute and make the arguments strong...Although I have to admit it is a bit sweaping, especially beceuse of the time constraints and some people might feel a bit num...But even so I personally saw an eagerness to "do my best" from everyone...

There was a bit of competitiveness but just because we have developed our relationships over these months it was a healthy kind of competitiveness...Maybe if we had done it at the begining of the year this aspect would have been different.

As far as, the usefulness of this learning will be in the future is concerned...First of all, content wise the theme on innovation/creativity and standards develped a team output which I would like to call "Typical MBE" meaning that in this case it goes beyond the surface of what things might seem to be and traces the responsibilities organisations ought to fulfil at an internal level, by touching upon issues about leadership and culture...

On the other hand i think it made obvious that there is always another side to consider apart from what you think...Sitting there and hearing the other team's opinions made clear to me that it is critical to respect what other people think... understand why they have that standing...but in terms of being fair arguments are also  required...

    Hi friends,

    Its really great stuff!!, Actually Motorola introduced the six sigma and now all the major fields following these six categories to improve their knowledge. I am excited to surf through the link provided.

You can also surf through.

    Friend,

    Compared to the try-fail method, in which practitioners may generate thousands of ideas before finding a really useful concept for developing a new product or service, Six Sigma’s systematic approach may be seen as a threat to creativity
    Thanks
