I agree - I only left the default site styling for now to get feedback 

before going too far - agile baby! :)

In the left navigation? LS: yes

I don't quite get this one. The Objectives do expand/collapse in the 

left nav when selected. If you select Overview then you just see the 

list of objectives. Do you somehow mean in the right hand content side? 

LS: no the left side each with an expand /collapse icon (like in the mock up). when you go to the home page of the design guided the the objectives are listed and you can see they are expandable. when they expand you can get to the user testing , user stories and list of pattenrs

I assume you mean in the left nav? That should be an easy style change.

Do you mean within the WAI site or out to the TR Note?  

LS:within the site . we should have a link to the note from  the overview

OK! That's definitely the direction to go in. I suggest we keep these 

for a subsequent iteration/sprint though.
