This week our mike bikes team was faced with a new challenge when trying to decide what to do after a very disappointing previous week. Faced with a huge amount of debt and a net loss for the first time we definitely felt the pressure put on the decisions for this week. Everyone got stuck in, each giving their two cents with informed debates raging. This I thought at the time would be a huge help to our cause, as isn't this what the group works all about??. A complete once over the entire simulation seemed to occur throughout the week. Our spirits were still reasonably high though going into the rollover on Thursday as we had a pattern that worked previously and if only we could get back on it all would be well. Unfortunately we got sucked into a trap because we still had good sales and didn't really look into reducing our huge cash debt as we thought we could make our way out of it. This confirmed our ride on the downward spiral with this week's results even worse than expected and looks like there's almost no escape. A depressing time for our group as I'm sure most can understand. Currently at a complete loss at what to do to try dig ourselves out of this seemingly never ending pit of debt. How are we to face this new challenge as a team?? my hope is it will bring our group closer together as we fight to stay alive. However the blame game could turn into a bigger problem than had been in the past as frustration within the team builds. With a closer look into the reports however it's not entirely a doom and gloom situation. However I'm a glass half full type of guy so it'll be interesting to see what happens.
