This is a great resource for M&E staff or other “integrators” in small to medium-sized organizations that are playing a support role to projects and programs. It provides them with an understanding of how to improve workflows across their organizations, why it is important to do so, and why it is important to invest in processes and technology to support the conservation workflow, the core of its business. This is important information to get decision-makers in an organization to help them understand the value of the Open Standards and supporting technologies. The concepts in the document are excellent, but the overall guide could be improved by the use of more examples.
