THE REALIST  What resources do you need to make this happen – people, money, materials and technology?  What’s your plan?  What obstacles will you face? How will you get round them?

How do I feel when I examine it?  How would it look to a customer? A user? A member of the audience? The client? An expert in this field?  Is this the best I/we can do? What would make it better?
