The End is Only the Beginning

The survey ends this week, but the work of a survey does not end until well after the last answer is submitted.

In order to expedite the process we sent one of our instructional designers to BAO in Vienna, Austria to sit down with everyone involved and discuss what both sides of the partnership wanted and were […]
