Activities to Date:

  • 2/6 was the first day of prioritizing the HR recommendations from Ellucain.This will be iterative and result in an actionable list of improvements, split between what we will complete before the code freeze in June/July and what will be done in the 2019 optimization phase.

Next Steps:
