Some questions to ponder

3 August 2004

I’ve just finished reading the journals. And I’m prompted to ask the following questions.

  • Should a firm try out its intended strategy during the practice rounds, or should it do some kind of bluff?
  • Is ranking generally useful or generally not? What about in a team situation such as yours?
  • Are the number of words in an assignment a good proxy for the amount of effort required? When might this not be true?
  • Do CEOs really have it easy?
  • Is any of the teams a ‘real team’ yet?
  • Can a firm really afford to buy another in the first rollover, if they sell everything? (and will the have enough money to service the debt afterwards?)
