As we are approaching the last day of KBAM project, we are facing the a hard decision yet again. This was because after combining all the information, we have an excess information in which we have to decide which one will be in the best interest to focus for the CEO. I used to think its very hard to find enough information to fill a project, inversely this project offer a different challenge of eliminating information instead!! I personally find it much harder to eliminate information to know what other want. The best way we came up with is putting ourselves in their shoe and try to see what will be most convincing by letting other people of that section present to the rest of the group and giving points to each other upon the convincing ratee
Despite using multiple decision making tool, the harsh part of this is that we will never know if the decision we took came out to an optimal result or not :(
Overall this module have open another new door to new skill that we should master

despite having group meeting daily, most of them tend to be discussion about what information we have, what problem we are trying to tackle to convince the CEO, what information we need to acquired, and just learning the topic as a whole. However, most of the research were still individual sections distributed which kept me quite confuse of how everything was going to match up together as one presentation as i was doubting the strategy in the first day of complete separation in parts of the work.
I have just left today meeting and i finally things are fallen together when i started to find out that despite separating topics to cover, most of them are at the end interrelated in some way which make it much more clear once we start piecing the jigsaw together. This have now made me realize how to system in the real world is actually is and that in a team activity, team leadership theory is also very important because it make you share the burden and trust your teammate in order to produce the quality level of work we expect.
Overall from really confuse and doubtful, am really loving the module of making me realize how to combine my knowledge and link what i have learn togehter!!! It would be even bettter once i get to see how other groups is approaching the problem helping me learn that much more.
Have been discussing about how to approach the problem, one of the main focus we struggle to agree upon in the group was what does the CEO want? The first approach we use started off by trying to look at all the field and try to suggest all sort of improvement. We then came to think about it and think its too broad and it doesn't sound realistic to the CEO despite it might be possible. We then started moving our approach to finding a problem in the organization to tackle so that the CEO will see concrete result that they can expect thus feeling more safe and convince in hiring. More argument have continue if we should make it a look good despite maybe not the whole truth to make it as real life and win the contract in anyways.
Throughout this subject while trying to combine all knwledge including EFQM (CBE), leadership skill (LE), decision making (RDM), DFSS (PIUSS) and Finance point of view (FACS) and just about evreything we have acquired this year. It have been a very interesting project and hope we can win the CEO heart at the end!!

As we are reaching the period of more worked accumulating between dissertations, old PMA, and current projects, time management have again become very vital. Each members of the gruop tend to focus differently among what they should spend their time to. This have resulted in a very different style of working in our group for KBAM, in a way much more realistic. The reason is because most of the time group work are done together in meeting and the decision are make together. This time, due to many project along with large pool of information to cover, the each person are assign each part of the work individually thus having to trust other teammate to produce the same quality work for the team in order to create an optimal result.
I can't wait till next week to get over with LE and combining our group work to see how this different type of working which is more realistic will bring us to. New module always come with new experiences, really enjoying it and hope other is too!!

these past couple days i have been researching about the topic we allocated during the first meeting, it is very fascinating how all of the information we studied together collide and come together as one main project and how it will happen in the real world. With only the small part am allocated out of the five, it is yet still very big and that i am finding new things the whole way. It make me realize how important it is and that everything in our daily life is just about knwoledge and that everything grow from it.

today was the first day of our new module, it was a very interesting day despite a very short lecture. The main reason was because the upcoming project that was giving allowed us to use multiple skills we have learned throughout the course. It was really good to know that instead of doing small mini projects, we are now freely to make more decision upon things. However, it was very interesting to see that we will now have an OFFICIAL leaders in each group instead of a normal group this time around. This have made it a very different type of situation because now everyone have a common knowledge of who is the leader and make the process much more systematic (example was clear of meeting time and problem when someone is not free since the first day). This have really benefit and minimize the time that is lost due to no emerging leader.
Really exciting the to work with new groupmate i have not work with and hope that i will get to apply a GOOD team members skills i obtain from leadership module.
