First major assignment done!

Phew.. Just finished the Jones.Blair case study assignment for the Marketing class. My group and I just turned it in about 20 minutes ago. What a relief it is to be done with it! Ofcourse, that is not any indication of our grades. I have no clue how we've performed. It is a little unnerving for me coming from an Engineering background to attempt an assignment where there is no one right answer. I guess it will take some time!
A lot of arguing, a lot of ideas (good ones and absurd ones), many hours coming up with alternatives, a few hours trying to poke holes into the proposed ideas to make it fool proof. I got much closer to my group at the end of the assignment. It was a great learning experience!

Here's a pic of my group taken during the previous case study discussion at the Atrium..




Edit : Picture of us victoriously dropping the assignment into the drop box!

Akshit..
lol, I don't think it will take us this much effort after he gave us some sort of thinking structure today!

Pavit..
