Interesting. I assume the questionaire is meant to be a verbal cue sheet to facilitate a dialoque during the interview/information process [\] .
The head of the nail must be aching mightily, because you, sir, have smacked it directly.
What matters most to me is that people understand that they/we are being initiated into an ongoing dialogue. We cannot be passive customers who pay a fee and get a performance or service. Nor can we behave like clients who expect to have everything custom made to our satisfaction.
We need to understand that we are joining a team of people who are collaborating in creating something. The team may be led by someone with a great deal of experience and expertise, and it would be foolish to ignore their instructions -- but worse, to imagine that we have nothing more than money and going through the motions to contribute.
Thanks for stating things so well.
