Another three very busy months on the access and fieldwork fronts are now behind us, with the project progressing really well and on schedule.
On the FIELDWORK front, Maja has been travelling almost non-stop, commencing her stay with Chief Executive number five at the end of January 2012 and returning for a three week stay in April. She also completed her final two weeks of observations with Chief Executive 3 in February, and spent a second two-week set observing Chief Executive 4 in March.
After successfully securing ACCESS with Chief Executive number six in January, we are currently undergoing the process of local R&D checks at this site, with a plan to commence fieldwork in early May 2012. We also met with the seventh Chief Executive in our sample in early April, who expressed a lot of interest in the project and confirmed that he is happy to participate. This effectively completes the access stage, which was absolutely crucial to the overall success of the project. We are unsurprisingly extremely pleased about that.
