This weekly report highlights the contribution I personally made to the Hookah Bar organization during the time period of November 17th through December 1st 2011.

As Thanksgiving was during this week we did not have many tasks to accomplish. My major objective for this past week was to finalize the group’s feasibility report. I managed to make so improvements as well as additions to the actual report.

The Organization Postmortem and our feasibility report is due in a week so my main focus will be on completing the documents. During class I assigned the tasks to the group with everyone’s cooperation.  We all know what part of the document we have to complete. The group decided that we should have an additional team week on Tuesday just to have everything and every aspect of the presentation covered.

The following week will be challenging as a lot of assignments are due. I also will have to help the others in creating a new Power Point presentation for the group’s final presentation. I am very optimistic and I think everything will turn out just fine.

This weekly report highlights the contribution I personally made to the Hookah Bar organization during the week of November 10th through the 16th.

We as a group have successfully managed to complete all our tasks up till now. This past week I managed to catch up on most of the readings assigned for class. I read a couple of articles that were assigned by the professor, in class and via email.

In addition I completed a survey for the Hookah Bar that will be a resource for the success of our marketing strategy. I also asked a few other people to take the survey. The more people we can ask, the better it is.

We got the Mid Term Project Report back on Wednesday. The team plans to do revisions to the document and submit it before Wednesday. There is a group meeting at 4 pm on Tuesday. We all plan to work together on the revision.

This weekly report highlights the contribution I personally made to the Hookah Bar organization during the week of November 3rd through November 9th of 2011.

The Midterm Project Report was due this week. There were a lot of things that had to be completed before Wednesday of this week. I was personally responsible for assessing our team on the whole. I had to go back and make sure that all the due dates were met and that all the group members were on track. All my group members have been working really hard and have contributed their all.

Various parts of the Midterm Project report were divided amongst the group members so that we could get everyone’s insight on the progress that we had made up till now. I coordinated two group meetings this week. One was held on Tuesday at 7:30 pm and the second was at 5pm on Wednesday. Both the meetings were extremely productive and we managed to complete all are tasks.

In addition to all this I was also responsible for making the PowerPoint for our in class presentation. With the help of my colleagues the PowerPoint turned out very well and we used it to our advantage during the presentation.

For next week I plan to catch up on the class readings in addition to doing more research on the marketing strategy that we plan to follow. We had to accomplish a lot of task last week so this week I plan to relax a little.

This weekly report highlights the contribution I personally made to the Hookah Bar organization during the week of October 26th through November 2nd 2011.

Our groups total investment plan was due this week. My main goal for this week was to help in the completion of the investment document. Allie and I allocated the funds between renovation, purchase of equipment, inventory, licensing expenses and insurance premiums. After the allocation we were able to construct an estimate of our total budget for the Hookah Bar.

The total investment numbers are an extremely important part of our Organizations feasibility report. The financial success of the Hookah Bar depends a great deal on how accurate our initial investment numbers. So far I feel that we have come very close to our projected investment.

I also coordinated the group meeting that was held on Wednesday at 5pm. The midterm project report is due next week. My goal for next week is to complete the report. There are two group meetings next week that I need to coordinate.

Hookah Bar Week 9 Report

Date: November 3rd 2011.

To: Dr. Rivers

From: Hookah Bar, Ali Khan

Subject: Weekly progress of the Hookah Bar Organization

 The Hookah Bar Organization performed the following tasks between October 26th and November 2nd of 2011.

The organizations main goal for this week was to draft the total investment plan for the Hookah Bar. All the group members worked collaboratively and successfully created the total investment plan before the planned dead line. Our total investment draft consists of revenue allocation for the different stages of development of the Hookah Bar.  

More specifically the total investment document includes financial allocation to costs such as renovation, purchase of equipment, inventory, licensing expenses, insurance premiums, etc. The total investment document is a substantial part of the Hookah Bars feasibility report because it consists of all the initial expenses that the bar will be recurring.

The second task that the organizations successfully completed was the initial marketing strategy report. The marketing strategy of the Hookah Bar is currently being reviewed by Li Lu’s professor of marketing at the Saint Louis University. The revised marketing strategy will be available to the group for a second review by Monday of next week.

The upcoming week is going to be very important because the midterm project report is due. Our group decided to have an additional meeting on Tuesday especially for completing the midterm project report. Everything in the organization is going very smoothly and the group is functioning extremely well.

Subject: Weekly record of individual contribution

This weekly report highlights the contribution I personally made to the Hookah Bar organization during the week of October 19th through the 26th of October 2011.

The majority of my time this week was spent on making revisions to the Organization Plan Document that Dr. Rivers had returned with his suggestions and comments for improvement. At the end of class our group had decided that Thom and I will be responsible for the corrections that had to be made to our groups initial Organization Plan.

I kept the original document that Dr. Rivers handed back to us with his comments. Because I had the original document, I did the initial revision to it. After I made the recommended changes I sent the revised Organization Plan to Thom with a scanned copy of the original document that Dr. Rivers had returned. Thom improved on the revisions I made and together we came up with a better Organization Plan Document.

I coordinated our weekly meeting that took place at 5 pm on Wednesday the 26th of October. I also updated the group about the progress that the group had made. In addition I also gave Allie the phone number of the realtor of the location that we are interested in.

My task for the upcoming week is to figure out how much total investment will be needed for the start up of the bar. We will use this information to start our feasibility report.

This weekly reports highlights the contribution I personally made to the Hookah Bar organization during the week of October 12th through the 19th of October 2011.

An important part of our Organization Plan Document was the Gant chart. The chart reminds our team about due dates and individual tasks. This week our teams’ goal was to organize the Gant chart and to assign responsibilities to the group members.

As the project manager it is my job to make sure every member of the Hookah Bar organization is aware of the progress being made by our team. During the week I went around the Central West End area trying to find a good location. I was lucky and I found a very good location. My next task is to forward this information to Allie and Li so they can get in touch with the realtors.

In addition I arranged a group meeting on the 19th of the this week at 5pm. We made the most of our time and the team made good progress. We managed to successfully assign duties to the members and everyone knows what they have to do.

My goal for next week is to make corrections to the Organization Plan Document that we got back in class on the 19th. Thom will be working with me on revising this document.
