    Description

    There are ways to improve the LAC process and its implementational procedures. One significant procedural modification is the addition of a new step. This step — which becomes the first step in the process — involves more explicitly defining goals and desired conditions. For other steps in the process, clarifications of concept and terminology are advanced, as are numerous suggestions about how to implement LAC more effectively.
