Regards, Bob Haugen <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< Bob, Thanks - good thoughts. I agree on the approach. Here's what I find in practice. People want a two day course. There is only so much you can cover in that time and have them absorb it and become effective practioners. When you start talking about a week long class - then people are seriously questioning just how 'simple' this is really! Of coruse over time the body of knowledge people have reduces the need for extended teaching and makes it more accessible. This is the reality we are facing. For most people this is a completely new and novel domain and they are bombarded with more acronyms than flakes in a 16oz. packet of cereal. DW.
