I was mostly referring to the short-term actions listed on

"Approximately 10 hours of work (possibly more) remains to interview
people and collect the data.
Several more hours after interviews to analyze the data and start
developing personas based on it."

Sorry, I should have been more specific. :) It seems like a group of
people could knock out interviews in the morning after a quick
"what-to-do" briefing, and then sprint away on developing personas in
an afternoon to have a good starting point.

In other words, what Máirín said. :)
