Found time to work on the PEUSS assignment and later took up the KBAM module sheets. Most of the asset management practices mentioned in the module are practiced in our company and able to appreciate it. The module notes gave insight on why central utility is held alongwith ISD and why contractors are managed by CU in TVSM. Some of the best systems and practices in TVSM like TPM,ISO,OSHAS,....were explained. Not sure how far will others in the group would understand all these things. But felt that there were few repetitions from the area of Finance, which could be accepted due to the relevance. Spent some time on asset management and need to focus on knowledge management in the next few days. Tomorrow morning we (the team) will have a meeting at the learning grid to decide on which areas to focus on.
Paul presented the objectives and learning outcomes of the module. The module is going to be with an entirely new way of learning, no class room teaching, no lectures, no internal assessment….its only the self drive and quest for learning which is going to push the module learnings. It would be a different experience for us. Hope to experience it. The syndicate exercise – Meetings on meetings…went on well, with Jane the general manager, Me the food and product manager, Vlad the training manager and Gez the front house /reception manager. The team discussed the issues quite smoothly and was very amicable. It could have been better if such a exercise (with minor modifications ) is held during leadership and excellence module…which might be useful to explain the leader's role or during the CRIP process (Catchball process). I did the summing up on learnings of the exercise and went on well. Later we had a team meeting and decided to go through the KBAM material and meet again on Wednesday to decide further course of action.
