Introductory information developed by the pilots themselves in conjunction with IRM, which reflects the central theoretical premises the pilot is testing through its brownfields work.
The matrix tables themselves are broken down into five columns. Each row contains information attributed to a single activity, so that each row should be read left to right, tracing each activity from concept through implementation and on to lessons learned.
|What is the pilot doing? These are the pilot’s tasks and objectives.
|What specific actions were taken to implement the pilot’s methods? How many? How long did it take?
|How is the pilot accomplishing the activities? What is the approach or the plan?
|What happened because of the activity? What did the activity lead to?
|Upon reflection, what insights were gained from the experiences associated with the particular activity?
Based on your experience with Brownfields clean-up and development, what would you recommend as “best practices” to other pilots?
Based on your experience with Brownfields clean-up and development, what would you have done differently?
What have been the principle impacts of this brownfields pilot?
These summary questions below the matrix seek to extend the lessons learned by asking pilot staff what they felt, in their own words, were the critical strengths and weaknesses of their pilot. In addition, pilot officials noted any general or overall lessons revealed relating to the brownfields revitalization process.
