Wittenborg's annual 'Project Week' excursion this year was held at the Open-Air Museum in Arnhem earlier this week. The Open-Air museum essentially demonstrates what it was like to live in the past. Students had a 90-minute guided tour followed by another 90 minutes of free time within the museum. The task at hand for the students was to identify and analyse the museum's market strategy, followed by how they can improve the museum's approach.

“Acting on an anonymous phone call, the police raid a house to arrest a suspected murderer. They don’t know what he looks like, but they know his name is John. Inside the house, they find a carpenter, a lorry driver, a car mechanic and a fireman playing cards. Without even asking his name, the police immediately arrest the fireman. How do they know they’ve got their man?”
‘Procrastination is the thief of time’. Have you heard this phrase before? Well, it’s an old adage coined by the English writer Edward Young in his 10,000-line poem entitled: The Complaint: or, Night-Thoughts on Life, Death, & Immortality, more simply known as Night-Thoughts. In the poem, Young muses on death and urges us to ‘be wise to-day’ as life and opportunities can slip away quickly.
