Assignment Three. Project Refinement
Comparing an Assessment of Capacity, Assets and Vulnerabilities with Your Original Problem Matrix

This is an important week and I’m excited to see your assignments.

This is the week where we compare last week’s workshop with your original problem matrix.

Last week you had the opportunity of conferring with your community and learning about their knowledge and also seeing their needs assessment through a new lens—their vulnerabilities and assets.

This assignment looks long—but it really isn’t. If you simply follow my example assignment you’ll find that it’s largely filling in short lists that the community gave you during the exercises and doing a bit of cutting and pasting.

However, I think you’ll find the results most remarkable.

Please move on to Assignment Three I look forward to seeing your work.
