Add to that the unprompted payment rate (.2 or 20%) and get 24.5%Show More Responses^That method won't work because it's possible that there are those on the email list that would respond without an email, so there would be some overlap, which means you can't just add the two together. Easiest way to approach it would be to draw some sort of Venn Diagram

 How would I tackle a specific situation in a certain department?3 AnswersThe challenge with the question is that were supposedly looking for an outsider to come in and take a fresh look at things, so many of the terms and steps were unfamiliar to me. It was a bit like the interview team wasn't on the same page about the role. I answered it in more of a generic fashion.I would learn as much as I could about the situation in the department then use the knowlage I had gained to solve the problemI will go to the department and will talk to the staff to get to know about the situation. If i can solve the situation i will solve it right there.
