December 19, 2011 (Monday) - Evolving the business model of one goods-based trading company into one based on information. Why struggle to compete with others in prices? Be deviant and change the rules of the game to create own blue ocean. By the way, it’s a waste for companies not to tap into the “outsider” brains of MBA students for free and possibly breakthrough ideas for their business.
December 19, 2011 (Monday) - Transferring marketing ideas from mind map to words in report is taking more time than expected. Will finish in one or two days so that I can turn it in to Turnitin, or else I’ll have to turn myself in to GSM for late submission.
December 20, 2011 (Tuesday) - Submitted the first incomplete draft to Turnitin for “testing”. Result unknown. Still writing up on marketing strategies. Learning more when crystalizing ideas in words. Took one hour to draw up perceptual map alone. Work to be continued tomorrow. Good night.
December 21, 2011 (Wednesday) - Met client in their office, conducted training on email server. Now sitting in cafe in KL City Walk, drinking Vietnamese milk coffee, writing up on marketing mix. Typical work + study life in past 2 years.
December 22, 2011 (Thursday) - Finished writing on marketing strategies, having taken 3 days and many pages. Case report writing is now 90% done. Should be finishing up the final part soon
December 23, 2011 (Friday) - Case study report COMPLETED. Submitted to supervisor and Turnitit for checking. Hopefully not much change required. Now I can sleep. Good night
December 23, 2011 (Friday) - Someone told me I’m a “controversial” person in GSM. Well, it’s good to be controversial, not good to be ordinary. Stand up and speak for what we believe in. That’s how Namewee created a niche for himself too.
December 24, 2011 (Saturday) - Spent hours to settle company accounts and works delayed while focusing on case in past 2 weeks. Will start to revise for the last ever exam on Wednesday.
December 24, 2011 (Saturday) - Reading up on training needs analysis (TNA), one of the four areas to be tested on Wednesday. Studying is over soon, but lifelong learning continues (thanks to MCA). I already identified my own learning needs (or rather, developmental needs) in 2012. You?
December 25, 2011 (Sunday) - Christmas time + Study time for Training & Development = Task analysis on Santa Claus.
