The purpose of this collaborative is to facilitate the improvement of the process whereby education project plans are developed, maintained, and routed through the established channels.  The goal is to transform project plans into dynamic representations of a project's characteristics, implementations, and life cycle.  Project plans in their current state represent .more of an archive of  boiler-plated monuments to a project's history.
