Evaluation/2009 August

    From Strategic Planning
    What we did well What we could do differently
    • Wikimania 2009 and the board meeting went really well.
      • Prepared (w/ the exception of not having a sign-in sheet)
      • Discussion went well
      • Took deliberate time to get-to-know people
    • Phase 2 fleshed out well
    • Process of getting the Task Force started
    • Happy w/ number of proposals submitted
      • Community filing structure is good
    • Engaged significantly larger number of people than we did in July
    • Pretty much on schedule, which was very aggressive
    • Could handle proposals better
      • Been more reactive than proactive
      • Still don't have way to separate tactical and strategic; waiting for Dynamic Page List
      • Haven't done great job of driving discussion about proposals
    • Be more proactive
      • Putting together stuff on running your own strategy discussion
      • Offer more guidance in the Wiki process
    • We need to be more aggressively transparent
    • Still need to be aggressive outreach, especially developers, readers, developing countries, WMF staff

    Goals for September

    • Shifted conversations away from proposals and into the next phase
    • Successful roll out of Phase II (Task forces)
    • Get more people involved
