Dear Natalie,
Thanks for this; I have some interrogations
1) on the difference we make between “focus” and “scope”; I find it
ambiguous ; I would think description is the lanscape (not very focused,
overview of the issues) and scope is among the above, what we cover,
what we focus on. Then I do not understand why focus is separated from
scope in a different chapter. Can you clarify?
2) are the cross-cutting sub-groups operating according to the same
3) where do we put the ref to resources like great data sources that do
not fall under a specific recommendations. Will th be later on in
decision tree?
