As we only have two lessons a week anything that you don't manage to get done will need to be completed as homework.  Completed activities can be saved to your user area in a folder titled Unit 1 The Enterprise Mindset or printed out and kept in your class notes folder.
I hope you enjoy this unit as much as I enjoy delivering it.
