5.2.2 Identify the outcomes you hope to achieve

An outcome is the result or consequence of a process. For example, you may want to integrate information resulting from CD-Rom and Internet searches into a report, and to do this you may need to improve your word-processing skills. In this case your report is an outcome, and using your IT skills is part of the process by which you achieve that outcome.

Try to express the outcomes you hope to achieve as clearly and accurately as possible, asking others for help and comments if necessary.
