proper planning as a leader

Plan might occupy major part in being a successful leader. Currently, I am struggling on my own project and other assignments. Undoubtedly, the project is much difficult and different from the assignments. Although the words just equal to around 4-5 PMA, it is totally dissimilar situation. The project is expected more critical analysis than previous writing. Certainly, that should consider some methodology in the content. Why does this method be applied in the research? How do I guarantee this approach achieving the target? Last but not least, the critical point should be arranged in discussion part. There are so many researches completed in the field in which I am interested. How do I propose distinct viewpoint and find the gap between the previous studying and mine? I think that leaders might be a little similar to this. Planning, choosing, and implementing all the tasks within the limited time, the only thought I should equip with full confidence and face all the challenges. Hopefully, I will complete them all and submit the satisfied results at the end.

making better decision through discussion

We put a lot of effort to analyze AHP on group meeting today. Firstly, we try to make the agreement among the options which we are brainstorming. Some analysis is also discussed for benefiting WaveRiders. Just what I said, I like to cooperate with others from different background, because they always bring various ideas to stimulate my thought. Although some disagreement might be happened at discussion, we’re still trying to overcome all of them. One colleague might think totally different priorities with others in deciding the weights of AHP, but we still benefit from each other through communication. The adjustment might be made afterwards for unanimous result. In my opinion, AHP is just a technique to help to make the decision, but the consensus still needs the cooperation among the teammates. I’m forward to seeing the next meeting and realizing more decision process from my partners.

sharing information, making decision

It’s our first meeting for PDM and inspired me a lot. I always enjoy cooperating with different teammates from various backgrounds and benefiting from them. On the weekend, I spent much time on studying linear algebra for realizing AHP. However, we understood more about this topic through discussion this morning. Firstly, we discussed the decision process to proceed our presentation. We chose the decision method and then separated into different topic for further studying. My teammate shared a lot of information and helped us to get into detail of our choices. However, I didn’t prepare very well for this discussion and provide less information in this meeting. Yet, based on this discussion, all of us were much familiar with our each technique for helping analysis. Certainly, we also talk about the content which we would like to present. That’s included what kind of material we should present and how we explain the ideas for accomplish this task on Friday. Fortunately, it’s another pleasure experience to work with these partners. Hopefully, we’ll smoothly and sufficiently perform our view at the end.

lead changes

Leadership always needs courage to make some changes. Rather than simply waiting for chances, leader had better to change the situation proactively. I read some article about the comparison between transaction and transition leaders this week. Many researches intended that the former type of leader is much willing to pay more attention on each individual and to take care about his/ her improvement. Sometime, they are much more willing to lead the modification in the organization.

We always read the stories about the enterprise just staying in their position without noticing the change around the world. Kodak is an ordinary example for this kind of story. It once had been equal to film. Now it has to face the destiny of bankruptcy. Therefore, business owners have always to be aware the change around the world. This is beneficial to keep the competitive on the market and also helpful to make long-term prospection for the enterprise. The result is heavily relying on the leadership. It is not only keeps competitive currently but also leads proper changes to fit the world.

SW for RDM

In this week, we were introduced several methods to make decisions. I’m studying SMART and AHP on the weekend. Unavoidably, these two methods access with some math techniques especially AHP. I spent some time on remembering eigenvectors. Although it is not easy to access these skills into the problems, the most difficult thing is how to make the consensus within the group. Everyone is supposed considering in various aspects, so it is not easy making agreements on these items.

Honestly, the task is much more difficult than my original thought. At the first beginning, I thought that we just make several decisions and help the company to be competitive. After two days lectures, there are great amount of ideas emerging in my mind. In other words, many ideas might have potential risk to induce biased decisions. Even though group work seems easily making unbiased agreement, it still has high opportunities that we missed some essential clues or information in decision making process. We are going to discuss the presentation in the coming week. Hopefully, we can achieve the consensus with minimum biased thought.
