Hello EMBA GSN480: SDCA students!

Between now and the final exam, this is your space to make a contribution to group learning. Your task, simply, is to analyse, critically, articles and news reports. Other than this, I will not be too prescriptive — as this would be counter to the essence of a weblog — suffice to say that your posts must have something to do with sustainable development and competitive advantage! To find out how to blog, follow this link which provides you with some screenshots.
In terms of grades, I will be looking for quality rather than quantity. That is, huge slabs of text cut-and-pasted from web sites are unlikely to earn you high marks, nor will “Me too” or “I agree” responses. The main thing I am looking for is good, critical analysis. This might be:
1. Challenging a point of view
2. Forwarding a new perspective
3. Relating theory to one’s experience; or
4. Offering support for a position based on the literature.
One final point: it is quite acceptable for your contributions to be ‘comments’. It is not imperative that you initiate a blog topic. Note, however, that your comments have to be ‘approved’ before they will be viewable on screen. This is not because your opinions need to be censored, it’s just that blogs receive a lot of spam (some of it rather unsavoury) so it has to be weeded out.
