    Hi all,
    I’m working on the final assessment of IDW. I plan to draft a report that you all can edit, built around our agreed assessment approach, but I need your help.
    I was hoping to do a lot of this while flying to South Africa later this week. I would appreciate getting a sense of when we might get all the information in order. Here’s what I know and need:
    Lynn and Timea are compiling the basic quantitative stats—when might I expect these?
    Yolanda is responsible for the general participant survey — Y, can I get access to the results or when might you have a report?
    Several of us have been gathering more subjective information from key stakeholders — do you think we’ll have sufficient results by the end of this week?
    Thanks all for your help. We need to act fast or the “data” in people’s minds will be lost 🙂
