Did you know?
This sport was originally known as football in England, at least until the advent of rugby (a variant of soccer/football) which led to some confusion of names. The game soon became known as association football to distinguish it from rugby. Eventually it became known as football or soccer. The name soccer actually comes from the second syllable of the word association. The name soccer was adopted in North America to differentiate the sport from other forms of football played in the U.S. and Canada.

Having survived (and it was survival!) 5-years with the Blue-Box that is known outside as American Express Inc., the unit where I came into the company - the University Development Centre (UDC) held a 5-yr celebration. Bringing in people from the current, past alumni, and those who have left the company to discuss and catch-up on all of the goss.

A few boring presentations - but the gist was - it was a "success". I hate this word, cos you can always interpret success in soooo many different ways - in some cases a failure is a success too! Ha!

My view - a waste of a programme, a programme without any purpose or direction - and apart from having a Masters (MSc) element - not much more extra than any other University Graduate programme. Even the real estate on the Sussex University campus is being utilised now - as is being downsized, cos the whole notion of the UDC acting as an outside vendor for Technologies resources just didn't stake up. One word - experience - or the lack thereof. This type of "vendor" approach can only work with skilled personnel - not trainees! Bring back the ol' model that still lives and works - a few graduates coming into AXP Technologies on the standard graduate scheme - nothing too fancy, but still serves as a talent pipeline. Cynical - nope, just practical thoughts!

Then again, without the UDC, I might never have thought about working at AXP - so shouldn't comment really, hey!?

Bring on the next 5 years - well okay maybe 1, 2 or 3 years is more realistic!!
