For clients who choose to make the investment for focused development effort, we follow a formal process of interviews to develop list of specific use cases, application design, development and testing. We iterate through cycles in order to present the in-progress system to collect client feedback to incorporating in the final system. After implementation, these clients move to the "OpenACS/.LRN Support" plan.
