Who should lead the revision process?

Although it may be quite logical and expedient for the same entity/agency that developed the existing ELGs to take the lead in the revision process, some consideration should be given as to whether there are reasons to consider a change in leadership. Perhaps a new agency with strong connections to/authority over the programs that use the ELGs has been established since the time the ELGs were originally developed. Perhaps there are political or practical reasons that a lead agency should be added for the revision process. If there have been changes in the service-delivery system or the political environment since the time the ELGs were developed, additional consideration should be given to the agency leadership and the composition of the leadership team for the revision process.
