eventually firmly decided, the individuals
participating in the project have to make certain

?What percentage of a daily time frame of those
connected to the project are ready to commit?
?This is then extended to how much time per week
will the commitment require should any problems
arise within the project frame?
?What realistic time frame can be expected from
each individual participating in the discussion
sessions before the actual project begins?
?Will the ratio of each participant match the
