Today we began with a short reading quiz from pp 139-146. This time the marks didn't count so that you could see how the format works. If you didn't do the reading, you're not off the hook; please come to our next class prepared.
We spent the bulk of our time working in groups of four to work on new business plans for the HBC, a company threatened by the competition of the NW Co. Our current economic landscape seems to demand that companies are flexible and able to react to the conditions of the day (or better yet, to anticipate the conditions of tomorrow). Thanks for your group work today - you all worked well and everyone gave a fair effort. We'll finish this up next class: there is no homework.
