Its fun doing the RDM pma. Its pretty straightfoward and thats what I appreciate. While doing the PMA I've come across so many different aspects of these decision making tools that I have previously ignored. I guess thats why PMAs are there and are the next step. What Im liking most about the PMA is to actually sit and now analyse our own decisions we had taken as a group. This is also helping us in actally identifying certain aspects of decisions where we went wrong or have ignored or some aspects that we should have considered. Previously, during the in module time due to the lack of time we couldn't profoundly look into our decision methodology and evaluate them. Certain decisions were also made in haste. Moreover, tasks of the presentation were divided between groups, although there was exchange of information and we all had basic ideaof each of the decision making tools we had used, I managed to gain expertise only in the tools that I had chosen to work. As a result the extensive knowledge of theother tools. Fort me, the PMA is very prooving very helpful in overcoming this problem.
Oreviously, I was extremely happy when I got to know that PMA is just for 2000 words. But unfortunately there is so much to write that I can easily write much beyond 2000 words in these. This makes me wonder that a PMA should actually be long enough else its very very hard to pick up the most relevant and meaningful information and fit it in within the word limit. Its quite challenging to write a good PMA within the given word limit.
