I am delighted to have you who have systematically managed our time in completing this Bachelor Degree Dissertation (PSM). I remember how busy we prepared our PSM while other students not even started anything at the beginning of semester 8. I remember we had our oral presentation on 16th May 2014. We were the earliest! When my mother passed away on 18th May 2014, many friends gave me encouragement, care and motivation. At that time I realized I had just completed my presentation as the most important milestone for mine along the undergraduate studies. You are such a great lecturer Dr. Chew. Recall our journey, we started our questionnaire construction early. During the break of semester 8, we started our data collection. We have the earliest start. When others just begun their work, our team had almost 85% completed our tasks. Thank you Dr. Chew for teaching us the “real meaning of time”. We were capable to produce good quality dissertations. Here, I would like to express thank you once again for your guidance. We got an A (Apple) at the end! Alhamdulillah. Aminn :) I would also like to thank my beloved mother. “Mama, Izatul is about to graduate very soon!” :D. I would like to thank to my respected father, who contributes financially on my studies and keeps motivating me; and my siblings who have shown their support at the moment I was sad to continue my dissertation. To my beloved bff-Mohd Fadhil who helped me so much during my studies in UTeM, the PSM teammates and my housemates Mazliza, Farhana, Ain, Fatin Syamimi and Ain Nabila…and friends who have helped me directly or indirectly for the dissertation completion. Thanks to all of you. The journey in UTeM is truly awesome, because I have everyone of you with me!!

Completed: 31st May 2013

Comments from Bun Jian after the completion of the dissertation: ” Hi Doctor, here are some of the reflections for the whole session of Bachelor Degree Dissertation from me:

1) A good starting: Instead of helping us to create our project titles, you also taught us how to construct a good topic, RQs & ROs. We will be able to apply this for any research project in the future. A good topic can prevent uncertain challenges during the research process.

2) Clear direction: Under your supervision, we never felt lost. We always have a clear direction and knew what we should do next. We never needed to waste much time in order to identify what we needed to do. We also never lost the guidance from you.

3) Well planned: Our process was well planned especially in time management. We always did thing in advance and stood in front. Compared with others (our peers), we have more time to do our work and repaired our work for better quality achievement.

4) More values: Our research was not only for PSM, but also has contributed to PECS National conference. You maximised the values of our research, while have them published on blog for information sharing. Therefore, our studies have the values that contributed to the society and organisations.

5) Always ahead: We never studied things that are already out-dated. You taught us to forecast and to research on things/issues that will have significant impact in the future. Those things that we studied have the potential to be practically applied in a society or organisations.

6) Enjoyable environment: We have been stressed on “the quality of work” by you, but we also enjoyed the whole process and appreciated the fruits of our work. The entire team worked together, played together, traveled together and we ate together. We enjoyed the process supervise by you and working as a team.

That is all from me Doctor. It is written frankly and from heart.”

Comments from Siti Nurlidah after the completion of the dissertation: “I feel really proud because I have completed my Bachelor Degree Dissertation (PSM) within my best group members’ support. Along the way I have learned many things. I know more about life, because you always remind me to be a better person for positive self development. The friendship we built among the group members is driven by the fact-we do care about one another. We shared the pain and the laughter together. At the end, we worked together to complete the PSM before the end of the final semester. Last but not least special big thanks to Dr. Chew, your inspiration motivates my life.”
