Plan for Documentation

Ibrahim will be keeping the minutes and documentation for our group during this process by keeping attendance for group meetings and documenting the decision processes we go through to reach our goals. 

 

Miscellaneous

Need to work out transportation for supplies.

Need to confirm the date of first meeting.

Group roles and responsibilities are flexible and will possibly change depending upon issues that may arise during the project.

Will hopefully be able to work out consistent meeting times for the next few weeks after our next class.

Plan for Documentation

We are planning to use a system much like guitar hero to show the note to be played at what time.

As a group we are going to take a scrap-book esk approach. Everything we do we will take pictures and post as we progress through this project.

We are going to have people keep track of timelines and deadlines in order to meet them in a timely manner with a strong result. These deadlines will be layed out in the calendar to avoid confusion.

Replace this text with any thoughts your team has on a framework and procedure to ensure excellent documentation throughout the process.
