I am not sure if my class mates would agree if I have changed over the last 6 months. Well I would not lie. Warwick has changed me for the better. I see my self more patient and confident a person. Initially when I cam to warwick I did not like it and I hated the wmg style to teaching. The 9 to 6 classes and sitting at home and working on your pma. I really felt it made one anti social.......but I realised I have become more pateint as a person. Developing certain skills here and dealing with different issues has made me more confident a person.....
Well the class journey is almost coming to an end. I am definately going to miss our class a lot!! I love my class mates but in a way I am happy to be done with the 9 to 6 classes!! Its very tedious and by the end of it one is so saturated and barely can pay attention to what the professor has to say!!

I do not quite like the method of firing people who are in the last 10% slot in the company. I do agree that they do not fit there and they probably have other jobs that suite them but this is not always true. Sometimes it could happen that after all the bad ones are gone you will be firing the good ones who come in the slot. This will make the environment very competitive.This can lead to office politics and probably be a disaster for team work.
I really want to see if there is a good team in GE or not. And if there is how do they manage any competition which could exist.

Yesterday in the lecture hall I realised that hoow often we assume things and make our decidion. We saw parts of a movie called 12 men. The movie was about 12 men who were deciding if a boy killed his father. Since few of the evidence were against the boy, initiall almost everyone thought he was guilty. But after applying CRTICAL THINKING (Thinking without any biases, prejudice, other way, may be in others shoes how they would think or alternative way of thinking) they realized that the evidences were wrong and the boy was innocent. People just assumed that the old man (one of the vitnese) was right when he said that within 15 seconds he saw the boy run down the floor when he heard the noise of murder. But it was practically impossible for the boy to do that. Also the lady who said who saw the boy killing just before the lights went out was not very specks. This was got to light after critical thinking.
I realised how critical thinking is important. Another thing I learnt which was I really liked is the use of pestle. (pestle== Political, Economical, Social, Technology, Legislation and Enviornemt). Its import to look into all these factors while making strategic decisions. Its important to see for example what are the political problems such as high tariff or may be war with another country, or economical problem such as inflation, recession. After knowing the problems one can think of ways to carry on their business.
Class on personality was very interesting as well. Its so interesting to see how people with different personalities interact in different environment.
