Thank you Alan for explicitly bring this up. It's an important point to
cover. What you proposed makese sense to me generally and would like to
understand whether an extra step needs to be added in the timeline to
incorporate Bill's suggestion.

If this is the case, then we need to  shortern the time for each phase.

I also would like to confirm with Bill whether he is willing to do this
again for the udated draft as I understand it has taken quite some time
for Bill with many places to update, while not intended to be
substantive changes.

If it could be done without confusion, an alternativeI can think of is
to have redline of Michael and Bill's vesions, review within the CRISP
Team and incorporate the changes unless disagreed.

Let's discuss at the coming call what works the best without confusion
in pragematic way.
