Learning Journal Week-03
I’ve had a very long stressful and tiring week, and I’m not going to lie but I have not had time to do any of my readings for this class, which just means a lot more work for me next week. I’m quickly learning that with all the time meetings and discussions I’m going to have to be more on to it with my time management, because even after only missing a week of readings I feel very behind already.
Coming into week three I knew it was going to be a big week, because this was the first week we would get to properly work in our teams and actually sort out our team dynamics, and at the end of this week I am so happy with how my team works and how well we all get along. We were able to get into a nice flowing rhythm straight away, and we were all able to agree on a strategy and how we wanted to approach the Multi-Player Mikes Bikes. And I feel like this really helped us out in our success of the first week. We decided to take a few major risks this week, which made me so nervous, especially as the roll-over day approached, but I don’t regret a decision we made, especially because we are doing quite well against our competitors. I really hope it stays like this! Our skills and understandings in Mikes Bikes have also increased greatly and I am very happy with how much we have learned in one week.
At the end of this week I’m actually so happy I’ve chosen this course, and I actually like MGMT 300 a lot more now (because I actually understand Mikes Bikes, so it’s not so daunting anymore). I feel like this is most likely due to my team and how well we all actually get along. I’m fast learning that I need much better time management especially in conjunction with this course, and I hope that next week I can get back on track.
