No, the Information Sharing and Safeguarding Environment Playbook is meant to be flexible for many types of projects, people, and agencies, but there are things in every Play that you might find to be useful nuggets of knowledge or helpful questions to ask yourself, even if you are skipping over a Play.

Is skipping any Plays recommended? No. The Playbook was designed for maximum success potential and, as such, the Plays are interconnected in subtle ways such that skipping one might have a negative effect in another. For example, choosing to skip over Play 2 and set up a governance group for a project might have serious ramifications in the remaining Plays. The moral of this story is that the Playbook was designed with success in mind, and each Play is a step in the direction of that success.
