With no comment at all on how long it took to get this to me, let alone you, I have the mark.  No feedback yet, mind, but the mark. 70% For those of you in the UK, that’s the equivalent of a First, even though Cranfield only issue “pass” or “fail” as an actual grade. […]

Yes, it’s been a month.  No sign of a mark yet. I know at least one other of my cohort is waiting for their mark now too, and they’ve been told they’ll get it in a week so hopefully mine will arrive then. Then I can tell you more!

I don’t normally post things that aren’t completely on topic.  I’m making an exception for Gary Hamel. You may know that I quoted Hamel and Valikangas articles (they’ve worked together a fair bit) ad infinitum in my essays.  I’ve used Valikangas’s book as one of the ‘touchstone texts’ of my dissertation.  But I haven’t managed […]
