This past week I spent a couple of days visiting some AMG projects in an area a few hours drive east of Guatemala City.  This area has been very active lately with small earthquakes and tremors occurring every 10-15 minutes.  Most of the tremors felt just like a large heavy truck driving by.   In Guatemala City we have also had a number of small quakes this past week.  Some scientists say that this might mean that a big quake is coming, while others say that the pressure between the plates is being released slowly which avoids a large quake.  In the end only God really knows.  What is certain is that Guatemala sits on a good number of fault lines which makes it very active.   
Apart from the constant rumblings we had a good trip visiting four AMG projects and doing two scorecards in each of them.  Through these scorecards we are able to determine what the weaknesses and strengths are of each project.  By knowing the weaknesses we can draw conclusions as to how to better each project and the services we provide.
