Photos of cats and dogs adorn most walls in the Franklin, Tennessee, headquarters of Mars Petcare. Two weeks in the worklife of Britt Groomes, EMBA 2013 Britt agreed to share a sampling of his first-year experience from the two weeks between Saturday class sessions. week 1 Monday After work, I dive into our assignments from last Saturday’s classes. I read a case we’re working on and prep information for our current C-Team group project. Tuesday Connect with the other members of my C-Team to discuss our group assignment. We work through what we’ve done before the meeting and delegate pieces of the deliverable. Wednesday Get home from work. Spend some time with my family, which just grew to three with the birth of our daughter, Harper. Have dinner and take the baby in a stroller as we walk our dogs. Between 7:00 and 11:00, I usually settle into my individual and group assignments. Friday I use my lunchtime to get in a little training for the Music City Triathlon (my first) because most weeknights are devoted to schoolwork. (My wife set up a place in the sunroom to be my defined study spot). 34 Saturday Unless I’m studying for finals or mid-terms, most of my alternating Saturdays are free. Prebaby, we spent a lot of weekends on the lake. Now, we’re mostly hanging around the house with Harper. (And loving it.)
