With mike bikes coming to an end. I've noticed how much our group has evolved as a collective, from the start we had no idea on what to expect from the simulation. But as of today, I think we can say we have made some ground in reaching our goals as a team. Initially, this journal was going to be about how we managed to dominate our world in terms of shareholder value (1st Place) .However, after reading Christensen, C. M. (2010). How will you measure your life?  Christensen had briefly outlined the importance of ‘humility’ towards other people this involved learning from people who may not be as smarter than you – I thought this idea was interesting as I now look at our world (India) as a learning opportunity , as oppose to competition.

Moving on, looking over our progress as a team I like to think that we have successfully developed the ‘tools of cooperation’ that was needed to build a culture.  (Christensen, 2010)  defined these as the extent to which members of the organization agree on what they want from their participation in the enterprise, and the extent to which they agree on what actions will produce the desired results. This week among many our group meetings was solely based on a specific problem that we all agreed on, and the actions we wanted to take --- drawing back on Daudelin (1996)  the problem we faced this week was the calculating the right amount of SCU units. Our solution as a group was that we HR department needed to calculate how much money from our profit was going to be invested in order to solve this problem -- from the roll-over our results were better than we had expected.

Overall, although this is the last learning journal, I like to think that the learning doesn't stop here as (Christensen, 2010) states :
                                                                                                                                 “if you have a humble eagerness to learn something from everybody, your learning opportunities will be unlimited”.

  1. Well done on doing your last learning journal before the big one haha (smile)

    I feel that this one may have been a bit rushed due to a few grammatical errors.

    The first section here has a few errors with full stops and commas...

    "With mike bikes coming to an end. I've noticed how much our group has evolved as a collective, from the start we had no idea on what to expect from the simulation. But as of today, I think we can say we have made some ground in reaching our goals as a team. "

    The first sentence doesn't need a full stop after 'end' and there should be a full stop after collective instead of the comma. And start a new sentence from 'From the start...' 

    This sentence: "Christensen had briefly outlined the importance of ‘humility’ towards other people this involved learning from people who may not be as smarter than you" doesn't really make sense. I think maybe you can say 'who may not be as smart as you' or 'may not be smarter than you'

    Just proof read before you send in your final one and you should be sweet.

    Also, regarding Daudelin's framework, you didn't really follow the second the third stage pertaining to analysis and hypothesis of the problems and solutions and just rushed  through the structure a bit. Closely following the outline presented by Daudelin will help provide more of a structure to your pieces as it seems a little random in this journal. Good luck!

  2. Congrats on your achievement in MikesBikes. You obviously handled your problems with capacity efficiently, so well done.

    We are told to review journals based on their effective use of Kolb's or Daudelin's learning process models. With this in mind, your journal does not address a problem you faced until nearly the end of your journal. You then immediately identify what your solution was - but don't walk us through your learning process. There is no reflection process to illustrate how you reached your solution.

    So, I'm not trying to say that you didn't learn anything this week, because hopefully you did. What I am saying is; I struggle to identify that you learned something this week just by reading your journal. I think you will benefit from remembering this for your summative journal: make sure the reader can identify what you have learnt by reading your journal without you having to explain it. The purpose of these journals is to demonstrate your learning. So take the reader through the steps you went as your learnt something new (i.e. developing a solution to a problem you experienced that you will remember for the future). This will enable you to reach high levels of blooms taxonomy and show your critical thinking. Good luck for your summative journal!
