Week 4, Activity 4 Problems facing your organisation

Think about a problem facing your organisation that needs some serious thinking. Start a post describing the problem (no more than 100 words). Now find the post of a fellow learner and pose an open question to that person, something that might help the learner think about their problem in a different light. To get you underway, we have posted something about a current issue facing the OU at the present time – so please feel free to practise on us before having a go with your own organisations.
