  21. 21. What we learned from the process Challenges • Time is always shorter than you think and something always happens • Online template has limitations • Reviewing and collecting data is very time consuming and needs to be reviewed for quality Solution • If you imagine it will take 1 month, plan for 3 months… If you think you will need a team of 3, plan for 6… • Included more exhibits rather than tables • All data was submitted to one person to review and store for quality control @ACBSPAccredited #ACBSP2016
  22. 22. How can this be adapted? • Look at your team • Who is included and what skills do they possess? • Look at your process • How is your documentation and narrative controlled, stored, and reviewed? • Look at your document • Did you answer all parts of the standard and is it clear to someone outside of your organization? • Do you have clear support for what you say? @ACBSPAccredited #ACBSP2016
