Below is the email I received from Mr. Rasmussen and here is his evaluation (Score Sheet – April 30 2013).
Attached please find the score sheet.
I have not made comments per group but things that influence the evaluation is quite obvious from the 5 criteria I measure on.
There was quite some cases where one of the members did not participate – this pulls down the overall evaluation and the stronger members need to learn to coach the weaker members to a reasonable level of participation.
Some were very good in delivery, but a bit superficial or even smart about it, maybe an attitude that “if I present well then I have done fine”. If we had only had 4 groups I would have had time to ask more questions !!!!! I made a note of this especially for group 3.
Those who actually went to the shops scored additional points, not only by showing interest but also by delivering a better plan with more confidence.
None of the groups got the price structure right so if there is a next time then I will need to spend a bit more time on this and on the P&L calculation.
Group 1 did not do any of the calculations and this pulled an otherwise reasonable work down in the score.
Group 2 did very well, so did 3 and 4. I am not a trained and licensed evaluator, and it was only me so do not put too much importance on the score details.
