Addicted with MBE…… Finally understand the power of Knowledge…….

From the beginning of this module we hear Paul saying with this strange “Deming¢ voice:

“Be guided by theory, there is no substitute for knowledge”………. Have we ever understood what the hell this phrase means……??????? Do we really realize the magnitude of Knowledge power?

Well I am doing my Management of Change PMA….. While the module in my eyes has a lot of similarities with MBE modules it develops a different perspective than MBE. Professor Dee is a really practical tutor and when it comes in PMAs she doesn¢t want fully referenced PMAs with a lot of academic Jargons as she calls them. I remember her phrase which was:

“You MBE people do not give a PMA with 40 references” ahahahaha…….. It is funny because the average of references in our PMAs I assume it is 28 or something like that and she aimed on MBE students…….. J…….. We love Dee……..

Thus I decided to read 10 to 15 references and do the PMA. This requires a lot of thinking and to write things by your mind. . . . . However when I am trying to do so directly my mind goes to the questions: How can you support that? Has it been proven? Where is your reference?

For example why the vision should include people of the company? Can I reference EFQM on that? I am trying to write things that I have originally thought of that but which is my ground basis? I have to support that or else I am thinking that I cannot support it. I think there is no basis for it….... So I decided to do it in MBE way which I strongly like…It is our way it is our philosophy…….
This is where knowledge comes and plays fundamental role……….It guides us it shows us the way and help us built our own work………. We have learnt to think like that……. We have changed and we have changed a lot……….. This is what MBE has provided us for our future career a different mentality…… A scientific basis which could be applied in real world with incredible outcomes…………………….

Yes there is nothing most important:

Be guided by theory………….. There is no substitute for knowledge

  1. Until now, I do not know how to finish a good PMAs. At the beginning of the term , I wrote PMAs use less references, and it is hard for me to find relevant references, but it is not a good way. In recent days, I started to understand how to find references, but I feel it is still not a good way. So, which one is a good approach to learn knowledge ? It doesn’t matter the scores, the learning approach is much more important. But until now, I am not sure which one is better…..?......which one is more efficient?....

  2. You say that you learnt how to find references…..... This is improvement and you will improve it again. . . This willl lead you in the concept of continuous improvement…...... :)
