After the results for the first round, everyone was happy and much more motivated than before. Although the decision-making process included ambiguity and uncertainty, we were willing to take risks and that worked out. Of course, risk is an inescapable part of every decision, and to make good choices, organizations must be able to calculate and manage the attendant risks (Buchanan. L, O’Connell. A., 2006).


I think that an important note to take when making decisions is that to not fall into traps. The best way to avoid falling into traps is to be open minded and view issues through different lens and vantage points, and try conclude on an thought before suggesting them to others to avoid being anchored by their ideas, or vice versa, which also reduces the risk of choices being affected by factors such as bias.


Everything right now seems so far so good, and hopefully we can carry things out well in the future too. This week we had a meeting on Monday, instead on Wednesday when the workshop is held. This gives us more time and space to rethink our decisions and time for writing the journals and complete other workloads as well, makes it easier to manage time. I think that it is a good idea for us to do so in the future as it frees up our time slots.

  1. As I read this learning journal, I find myself worried that Samuel Wu might not have enough 'meat' in these weekly journals to successfully complete his summative learning journal at the end of the course; there is little evidence from what has been written here that anything has been learnt.

    To improve, you should explicitly follow Daudelin's approach to guide and structure your learning journal.

    In addition, you should clearly articulate what it means to learn something (rather than to know something) ... go back to the task description on the wiki for some help with that if you need it.

  2. Hey Samuel,

    I liked your analysis of our team state and I too prefer earlier team meetings. I agree with Peter that following Daudelin's structure will allow you to further your analysis of this past weeks events. I can see that you have understood this weeks readings but I would implore you to try and incorporate them into something you have learned. 

  3. Hello Samuel. 

    This journal entry is okay but I was just wondering what you had learnt from this week? was it to manage your teams time better by meeting at a different time? to change your mindset little bit?? I would recommend providing more examples and to ask yourself "what did I learn this week?" and try and apply the readings to that question. Also using Daudelins steps of reflection is also a good framework to use when structuring your journal. 

    All the best
