Some Helpful Advice
A while ago we became aware that Dr. Steve Shafer, Former Midwest Area Director, provides his scientists with a memo of advice as they begin the process of assembling their plans. We found this to contain many potentially valuable hints and guides and asked his permission to publish it here.  While your own Area Director may have additional or other advice, we provide this, not as instruction, but as an aid to your understanding of the OSQR process and how to move through it successfully. Our thanks to Dr. Shafer for allowing us to reprint this!  Project Plan Advice
