LTPI Projects are designed to be sprints with a defined deliverable to be completed within a 13 week window. Large projects may, by necessity, be broken into multiple sub-projects with discrete deliverables, brought together in the end with an assembly project. Most LTPI projects will operate with small teams of 5-10 members, kicking off when we have the right mix of experience and skill sets on the team.
Please note that project participants can realistically expect to put in 15-20 hours per month (2-5 hours per week) for the 3 month sprint. As such, we encourage members to limit their project participation to one project at a time. In light of the short time frames for LTPI projects, members may still work on 3+ projects over a year, consecutively.
Part of a broader "standards" initiative, we will create a practice guide for producing ESI. It will include:
We will define, in practical goal-oriented terms, what the process is about, when should it take place, and what objectives a practitioner should consider to make case management more efficient. We will cover how, if at all, the meet and confer process should link to an ESI stipulation, how you to approach informal dispute resolution, and how to plan a framework for discussions about issues yet to be raised.
