Lesson Learned/Best Practice

Incorporate trade break out and/or cluster groups earlier in design; cluster (break-out) groups should be scheduled in coordination with Big Room meetings and started at beginning of project; We suggest the breakout meeting start the Big Room days so that items that are brought up in the breakouts that need to be discussed with the larger group there is still time to it.  Also, this would insure that the breakouts happen.
