From the Church's perspective, we need to change internal processes, we need to analyze risk, figure out how to manage the projects from a QA standpoint, etc. We have a lot to do and this work has begun. I think the two things to keep in mind would first be the limitations of volunteer (and/or open...

Scale

Sometimes, really difficult problems on large scales can be simplified and represented by simple problems on small scales. Here's a possible way of doing that that may make the problem easier to solve: Perhaps, the majority, or entirety of the problem that needs to be solved here can be represented ...

Well, I'll throw myself out here on a limb... I'm actively seeking a job with the LDS Church right now. I have been since January 2007. I'm committed enough to it that I've pulled my info off of monster and am ignoring all other contacts for the moment. I'm only interested in working for the Church....

My 2 Cents

We have a few different examples of ...
