For data nerds: retreat feedback details

In a separate post (here), I provide a summary of your feedback from the November 11, 2014 CTSI retreat. This post contains details, for those of you that want to ponder the issues a bit more deeply.

The table below summarizes feedback regarding a CTSI mission statement. The first column is the category I assigned; the second is the concept or idea as extracted from your feedback, and the third columns shows how many times that concept was mentioned across all feedback received.
