  3. How do we Improve Best Laid Plans service perception, and satisfaction?

  4. Do we say no to customers for no reason?

  7. Ask yourself: how would we do this work if we only had one staff member to do it?

  8. How do we foster innovation?

  9. At what point will vulnerability assessments be performed once Best Laid Plans is put into production (e.g., ongoing Risk Management after implementation)?

  10. What trophy do we want on our mantle?
