As we prepare for our first ever assessment at the indigenous Lagos Business School, I wish all the MMBA 2 students myself included the very best of luck in the upcoming exam. It's been a fantastic five months of excellent and intensive study that has added to my knowledge base.

Always remember that the illiterate of the twenty-first century will be those who are unable to learn, unlearn, and relearn.... Alvin Toffler. I can confidently state that during the last five months, I have learned, unlearned, and relearned, all thanks to God and LBS.

Thank you for your consideration.

It is that time when MMBA 2 students are preparing for exam, oh I as a student is happy that I have learned a lot in a space of 5 months but I am overwhelmed by the number of things to cover.

Starting the recorded video of CFA , I am elated by the impact of that course on my thought process when I see a financial statement. I am happy to be tensed and hope for a great exam on saturday on this course

Earlier in life I learnt that order was a virtue. Originally, when order came to mind, I thought of a well arranged wardrobe or office desk, I have realized that it’s actually more than that. Order exists in different facets.

Order in my work: I should know which comes first, what is to be prioritized. Even God created the world in an orderly way. For instance the fishes were not created before the sea.

Order in my mind: To learn to chose my battles. If it is not a matter of faith or principle why argue and have myself in knots. I can simply let it go

Order in affection:  Well I will not say my father versus my husband here. No. Rather its God first, my supernatural family, my family(of which dear daddy and husband belong) and myself last. I believe loving my neighbors and making sacrifices for others is important. Little things o, I am no Jesus smile

Order in duties: we need to know what to do and the right time to do it. Likened to  the wise and foolish virgins of the bible. Pray when I ought, sleep when I should.

So when next you think of order, think not of a person ravaged by an obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD). However, think of order in your mind, your affections, your work and your duties. Let each have its time and place.

The systematic decision-making process which is the most reliable way to make high stake decisions is largely successful because it employs the divide and conquer approach. It breaks up decision making into its key elements; identify those most relevant to your decision; apply some hard, systematic thinking which leads to a decision. 

The eight elements of decision making are:

  1. Understand the situation - here you seek to identify all the relevant information. The WH questions of What, Why, When, How, Where and Who are usually very helpful.

  2. Identify and define the problem - here you want to be sure you are framing your problem correctly and not mistaking symptoms for the problem.

  3. Define your objectives - here you want to be sure of the outcome you want to see as a result of the decision. Clarifying your objectives Helps overcome conflict arising from different perspectives

  4. Generate alternatives - these are the raw materials of decision making. Alternatives are very important because you can never choose an alternative you haven’t considered and no matter how many alternatives you have, your chosen alternative can be no better than the best of the lot.

  5. Identify criteria - here are the important conditions an alternative will meet before you choose it. Your criteria prevent you from favouring an alternative without concrete reasons.

  6. Analyze the alternatives - here you evaluate each alternative using your criteria

  7. Take a decision - choose an option among the alternatives that fulfil your objective

  8. Develop an action plan - here you come up with steps to implement your decision

Welcome to the Month of June.

This song resonates with me as the day started- God of miracles, na my papa oo. This is the month where miracles would be plenty.

Let's get stirred for the best part of our life.

It is a good time to be alive.

Authenticity says be yourself with your full chest, regardless of whose ox is gored🥴

Meaning if you are outspoken and blunt, you should just say it as it, after all, you’re not lying, ba?

But hey, remember that thing called emotional intelligence?

core of emotional intelligence is self regulation. We should adjust our behaviours to suit our environments. We may not be able to control the words/actions/inactions of others, but we can control ours. Of course, you may say your gentility should not be taken for stupidity, but often you need to check the temperature of the environment before reacting, for peace to reign.

Sure you need to be assertive sometimes too but you should know what is suitable per time...

As my LBS mentor says, a leader should be in control of his/her feelings i.e. be self regulating...it’s a key element of emotional intelligence required for leadership.

Cheers,

Adefolake

This is the amount of the book value (a.k.a. carrying value) of common equity per share of common stock, calculated by dividing the book value of shareholders’ equity by the number of shares of stock outstanding. 

As we know, the book value of equity may differ from the market value of equity. The market value per share, if available, is a much better indicator of the investment of shareholders a company.

My account just got credited!!! Isn’t that what we all say, but now CFA has opened my eyes; I have been wrong all along.

What we see in our alerts is actually the Bank’s account not ours. So actually you were debited not credited, because an increase in assets is a debit, while a decrease in assets is a credit..

So next time we say our account has been credited let’s think twice.. Is it truly a credit??

I remain your humble expert, no semi-expert ❤️❤️❤️
