14 Methodology Detailed description of the programs implementation scheme through the description of its composing operational processes and their characteristics in terms of their attributes Description and analysis of the legal framework for its operation Description and analysis of the observational (true) processes and comparison to the norm Formulating indicators to measure the attributes of processes Detailed description of problem areas and best practices Information Documental sources Field work: in depth interviews, semi structured interviews, case studies, surveys (flexible) PROCES EVALUATION Methodology and information sources
