Gathering too much information wastes precious resources, including the patience of community members (Chambers 2002). 4. Flexibility. Engineers must be ready to listen to community members and incorporate their concerns and ideas in the earliest stages of a project. This method means that the engineer may have to discard preconceived notions and design a project that meets the needs and constraints of a community. Throughout a project, unexpected obstacles and opportunities may present themselves.

Informal group discussions and conversations with key informants are typically used to explore and develop this type of information. Assessing the Human Resources: Identifying Community Leaders Projects need the support of the community to be successful. This step requires the support, or at least the approval, of the influential members of the community. Some influential community members may be obvious, such as a chief or mayor. Others may not be evident to someone new to the community. Lists or Venn diagrams are effective methods of gathering information about the internal dynamics of the community.

Different color circles can represent organizations or projects with different levels of success, and people can be placed within the circles (Fig. 3-3). If a person is found in many of the circles, that individual may be critical to the success or failure of a project. One word of caution: Some people may be overburdened with leadership roles in a community, so caution must be used to protect such people from overcommitment when introducing a new leadership role. Overburdened leaders may burn out and become ineffective in their roles.
