At times, it can be quite difficult to track and understand the various initiatives. The PTO made it easier to follow them by publishing a chart (reproduced below) containing a timeline of the various initiatives at http://www.uspto.gov/patents/init_events/patapp-initiatives-timeline.jsp.The chart is a nice summary about where each initiative fits within the prosecution process. As well, the chart is interactive so the user can drill down to detailed descriptions about each initiative. Keep this chart (and its embedded links) as a handy reference tool in your practices.
