We’ve done it! We’ve developed a first draft of an Integrated Report for our CSVP program. And we managed to utilize one key concept or metric from each of our participant’s writings, while integrating them into a single cohesive document.
We’ll introduce our February activity next week, which will obviously extend into early March. But in the meantime, you are welcome to enter our Box folder, click on the new link entitled (0218) February 2018, and review the PDF document entitled First Draft – Integrated Report.
Before you do, though, please keep the following thoughts in mind:
> We are not merely writing about how one might develop an Integrated Report for our program. We are actually creating an Integrated Report for our program.
> Because the program is currently in a pilot test stage with small volume, the descriptions and metrics are very brief. Nevertheless, they lay the groundwork for a much longer report in the future.
> Although we only selected one key concept or metric from each of our participant writings, we will review and discuss all of the writings in their entirety during our February activity. We will also critique the first draft of our Integrated Report as well.
> In certain places, we chose a participant’s lower priority concept or metric because a different participant had already chosen a higher priority concept or metric for an overlapping topic.
> There is absolutely no relationship between the quality of a participant’s suggestion and the length of the program description that we wrote in response to the suggestion! Please keep in mind that certain suggestions address issues that are naturally “wordier” than others.
> In only one situation did we partially modify a suggestion. Jason noted several water, energy, and other data items in the Coca-Cola report that we reviewed during a recent monthly activity. We utilized his water and energy suggestions, but we referred to Marriott’s report instead of Coca-Cola’s report.
Why? Because our CSVP program doesn’t purchase Coca-Cola products, but we do stage our annual graduation event at a Marriott. So we utilized Jason’s recommendations, but we applied them to the report of a corporation that is a service provider to us.
And speaking of our annual graduation event, we can now announce the date of our graduation ceremony! It will occur on Tuesday evening, April 24th at the Providence Marriott. We’ll release additional details as they become available.
But for now, please feel free to simply review our first draft of our Integrated Report. We look forward to discussing it with you!
