Reporters CAT

The report writer's preconceptions about the target site influences what gets stressed, and what gets minimized. There is another CAT which the report writer often has: that of a feeling of responsibility for the report. If the situation is established where either the project manager's or the report writer's reputation is dependent on the contents of the report, an otherwise perfect (set of) session(s) can be totally ruined in this last step of the process as the report writer decides, "I'm not reporting THAT!".
