It has to take some time for me to have all emotions reduced so to switch my mind from system 1 to system 2 to make any valuable comments about presentation performance. For now I would like to analyse the working process, which have been happening during last working week.
It was a great idea to use several tools to underpin the decision making process such as SWOT, Decision Tree, Grid Analisys, & AHP. That made our team's results more weightened on one hand and gave a great opportunity to understand how they work, why they are used, and what are actual strngths and limitaions in comparing them.
Another thing that I got from the working process is that team shouldn't be just a sum of strong individuals, who make allocated tasks and then combine them into overall result. It has to be something more (that is why there are so many researches on corporate group responsibility in contemporary world as it is an important aspect in creating succsessful & profitable outcomes of an organsation).
Moreover, during most of modules we were taught that process of getting results is equally or sometimes is even more important comparing to results themselves. I can disagree with it now. Our team had a great process flow: wonderful understanding of goals, great team spirit, and proper task allocation. Unfortunatelly the outcome of this process was almost poorest I've had in the whole course. When such situations happen (outcomes don't show the process behind them) there are only two options (that's totally my subjective opinion):
- to take everithing uner control personally (without 100% relying on anyone else)
- make much less or no extra efforts (i mean working with passion) in further projects: only strictly do the required minimum of the task)
To conclude I would like to say that it was a great experince that showed that I still need to learn a lot about to not fall in such traps in future carrier.
