[10GMMF] Comment resolution process
Nice to see you all in San Antonio.
I thought the comment resolution was speeding up noticeably this time,
perhaps partly thanks to process improvements and partly because we
are getting more used to the process.
I have some additional suggestions that might speed things up
even further. Here's what I think:
1. we should have the microsoft access comment database file available
for download on the web, so that attendees can both prepare and
follow along on their own screens. The pdf document is hard to read,
hard to search, and cannot be sorted. The screen of the comment
database interface is tough to read from the back of the room, perhaps
because of practical font size limitations.
2. we could need a good-sized whiteboard/easel/flipchart in the
room. Some of the comment resolution discussions become fairly
technical, and a quick drawing or table could shorten some of the
longer discussons that we have seen, highlight the difference between
alternatives, etc. Supporting material in powerpoint is nice, but a
board speeds up the real-time changes that occur when we all put our
heads together. I believe the 3an group was doing this, presumably
the facility had provided the board.
Is this worth a try?
