With all of the great respect,
Here is the dew of my sweat and blood which I have spent all of my efforts to dedicate to my family, my friends, my previous and current teachers and also for my own, the dream of my life, Walt Disney (i.e. my philosophy)
“Designing a Business” (DAB) was a great sound to me from the first day that I saw it in the list of my elective modules of my Master course. Even though I had to wait for being a part of the DAB-class for two months later because of making the wrong selections, I thought I still got what I needed from the DAB-lectures and much more than that by somehow.
As a mixed module of Designing and Business, “DAB” gave all students the chances and opportunities to make their real business from the first of first steps (Mace Kingston, 2013). Students would start from finding their group as to become a small company. Every team, then, focused on the most simple thing as creating an idea, making prototype of product into harder things as doing market research, manufacturing the real goods, setting up social network and finally, making it real as selling their products in the market, doing financial calculations and so on.
There could be many and many things to write for what or which a student could learn from “DAB” and all of the key learning is also able to be different based on various view of each student. As the purpose of this report is a reflective essay of a Master student in Business, I do not want to avoid mentioning about any lesson in business aspects as Finance, Marketing, Human resource and so on. Nonetheless, in my personal perspective, I already had many and many times to study and learn them from thousands of books, on Internet and also in other modules of my Master course. Thus, from my own experience, the most important and expensive lessons for me from DAB is not only about ‘how to design a business’. It is about Designing Me and having a strategic planning for my missions in near future and I also wrote about them here in the way of my-own. This seems to be how a true reflective essay should be and also become an explanation for any reason why I focus on writing this report like this.
As follow the general principle, the structure and the writing style of this report must be in an academic way. However, while it is in first person that it can be informal and become a story, I guarantee for every single word and sentence has been written carefully (I have tried my best with my poor English) and I hope that reading this “DAB-tale” may not become a boring journey but very enjoyable.
