From the beginning, TIME was the major boundary issue for P&G's Research & Development University (RDU) during the Colleges. Even during the pilot college, some trainers were late, others tried to start early, and others skipped scheduled breaks so that they could present more content. Participants also came late or left early, perhaps in response to the trainer's own attitudes about time. It then became difficult for RDU staff to control participant coming and going with trainer and speakers violating time boundaries.
