Weeks 193 to 195 (BMAL 888)

Doctorate of Strategic Leadership program Robert Forto

Weeks 193 to 195

I am half way done! After all of this work I have reached a major milestone. While some people are half full or half empty I tend to be a realist and I fully understand that there is still a whole lot of work to go but it is a nice ‘checking off the box’ kind of feeling. 

With that, I am working on Task 10 and it is a doozy. It is the interview questions and guide and how they play into the research question. Up to this point it was a lot background on who, what, when, and where. Now it is asking the questions of why and how. 

We are starting week six of the term and I feel I am on track. We will see. 

Here is my progress report for this week which is the requirement for the course and my chair: 

Proposed topic

Transgenerational succession with an emphasis on an emerging female leader.

Description of your progress during the past week

Received approval for Task 9 with a couple of minor edits and now I am working on Task 10. I am happy that I am more than halfway though the project! 

Description of any roadblocks you hit during the week and how you are working through them


Description of what you plan to accomplish next week

Continue to work on task 10. I am trying to figure out how to come up with interview questions
