This PMA have been the longest time consuming PMA i ever had throughout my time here in WMG. It have for sure taken me over 40 hours but yet it was a great experience.. Today as i was relaxing and reading jokes after finishing the final touch on my PMA, i found one quote i would like to share which really work well for this PMA...
Conclusion is just when your too tired and cant' think anymore.
This is because this PMA have so much stuff to consider until if i tried to consider all of them, i woudl still be no where...
Hope everyone is doing wel!!!

The past two weeks for me have been literally nothing but KBAM... i have read sooo many journals and the pros and cons of it trying to fully understand the concept. I personally came to a conclusion that knowledge management is a very powerful tool, however it is a very skill and commitment required process in which not everyone can actually make use of. It also act as a double edged sword if you try to implement and fail because it will also waste you resource and time quite significantly. One of the key criteria to this success for me is to fully understnad all the condition and requirement and give 100% commitment to the project or else don't attemp it because it will come back and hurt the organization for failing.

It is all about sharing culture and sharing things for the past few days for me, trying to improve everything. It is until then that i really realize that the best power and motivation that comes out from a worker is when they feel that they are the ownership of the thing they are doing and not just an employee. This aspect is very amazing how people treat things complete different when they own it which is clearly seen throughout daily life. On the other hand, the most obvious yet the biggest obstacles that organization are facing is fear factor. FEAR of this and that all around and only want to do what is best for themselves in the short is something which is known throughout but yet can't be solve. THe only way i came up wid is trust but yet that is one of the hardest criteria to build and this is not only talking about couple people but the whole ORGANIZATION.
These puzzle have been shufflin through my mind... is there anything that can solve it except time and luck? or it is just matter or creating the best out of what we can...

As i have been trying to adjust for my PMA, one of the biggest challenge i have is to consider if the information or strategy in found in the literature and journal could be apply to waverider. The problem is because wave rider is a relative small organization whereas most literature talks about medium to large enterprise. I have been struggling to decide whether or not some information as transferrable or is it not going to work the same for both. The main reason which i use as consideration is costs and how relevant/effective it is to the organization.

As am finding solution upon the asset management factor chosen... resrouce utilization, am very stuck upon is there a one best stop solution in a literature for the organization. As i keep searching, more and more pros and cons on each one come up and it have been very time consuming in which i donno when to stop or is the method sufficient. Not only that, but the more topic you want to cover, the more new area and detail will be found bringing the paper to a new dimension. ANyone having a similar problem of a non ending research sesssion??

Usually when we work alone, we get are very limited with ideas and ways of approaching and issue. Most of the subject here encourage group work which in turn lead to sharing ideas and broaden our thinking. Today, while being stuck with KBAM PMA, and can't find a source of information to go upon... i decided to go through other team presentation to see how they approach the aspect i chosen. The result was fascinating. Not that it only offer me great insight upon other perspective i should focus on, but it also help guide me on what could be complement in what am doing. With the website allowing us to access old information, it is as if the classroom is working as one tank pool of information to a point which is very helpful!

After days and days of research... am still really confuse of which topic i should go strongly and focus on. The reason behind this is because in some aspect, i tend to have more interest in, in another aspect i think in sound more realistic and reasonable (praticable), another aspect also include the amount of source of information i have access to...
Been really hard decision for me to make because there are consequences in all decision...
As i have been working, one of the main information i found and was very amusing is that by doing small things accumulately can lead to very big things...

After days and days of working on this, i have finally submitted my PMA. It took so much more to click submit this time around yet most of the time it was the best moment i have been waiting for. THe main reason behind this is because it is not about bringing things together but its about improving myself. Everytime i read it and think about, another idea comes up. It is like a never ending journey. However, the sad part is this PMA only allocate 40 hours of working which is over used will result in suffering of other work and is again a decision to make! All in all i really like this PMA and very fascinate with the new skill acquired and really hope it could bring me better decision in the future!!

As i am putting the final touch on RDM PMA, one thing am really doubting now is having multiple type of decision maker in a group. At the first glance it might look as if it is really good because the group can have multiple point of view and thus bringing the best out of everoyne. However, sometime in decision making there are no such thing as 'BEST' it really varies toward intrest thus having too many different or CONTRADICTING type of decision making will result in chaos in the group members. In most cases like i have experience first hand, it woudl end up being democratic which is a fair yet very suboptimal solution toward the group decision. INversely, people argue that one type of decision maker will only result in confirmaion thus creating no added value among the group ideas.
WHAT is the right mix? is there a right mix? or it just matter of luck and getting it right on the time?
