After being in Uruguay and working with through the iSTEP internship experience, I have learned that you always have to be prepared with a back-up plan. This applied to multiple areas of my work this summer.
I thought I would have a couple weeks longer for development but did not due to a much longer than anticipated needs assessment. This required quick thinking to develop a plan for the creation of the OCT. I also needed to have a back up plan when I was switched from the CAT to the OCT project. Again, I needed to use a plan to make this switch as smooth as possible.
In field work, you always need another plan!
