Set up for the proof of concept

Who do we want involved in our proof of concept? Well, everybody: or at least, a representative of each stakeholder group involved in the process. If we don't have full representation, then we might miss something and jeopardize the validity of the test. More crucially, those missing stakeholders would be well within their rights to withhold the sign-off and prevent us from progressing.
Full representation doesn't just mean ...
