My topic is transgenerational succession in the family business, focusing on leadership readiness.
Description of your progress during the past week.
I finally got Task 1 approved after a very productive call with our professor. She was kind enough to give me several pointers that changed my view on how I was approaching the project. I have also submitted Task 2 for review for a second time with just a few edits suggested. I am already researching theoretical and conceptual frameworks for Task 3.
Description of any roadblocks you hit during the week and how you are working through them.
I did not encounter any real roadblocks this week other than time management on my part. Being self-employed and the start of winter in Alaska always has its challenges, but I have learned to manage.
Description of what you plan to accomplish next week.
As mentioned herein, I hope that Task 2 is approved and I can start to work on Task 3 and possibly 4. We have just four more weeks in the course, so it will be a time crunch as we move forward. I know I am not too worried about the time it takes to finish this project. I do not have hard deadlines for graduating or finishing, as many others are very anxious to do so.
