Notes of the meeting:

I propose the TOC. Josef suggested that I insert a concluding remarks in each chapter. In the introduction I have to isolate the point, my conclusion, then move forward through the different chapters to demonstrate or reach the tacite conclusion already mentionned in the introduction. In writting the concept and motivation I will then make the introduction of my postulat and business philosophy. The other paragraphes will frame and support the philosophy.
