Dates Country Place Notes Strategy Discussion?
2010-07-9/11 Poland Gdansk Wikimania 2010 Yes


On the Dutch Wikipedia a "forum" is organized wikipedia:nl:Wikipedia:Over_de_toekomst/Strategic_Planning to discuss this Strategic Planning process in Dutch.

The German chapter has organized their own planning project, details at Village_pump#Kompass_2020_-_Wikimedia_Deutschland.27s_strategy_planning_process

WikiProject Oregon has a monthly WikiWednesday meetup, the first Wednesday of every month, in Portland. We talk about many wiki-related things, not just Wikimedia projects; currently we're setting up a city wiki and planning a conference for next spring. But Wikimedia strategy discussion would be an excellent addition. Details: pdx.wiki.org

Organizing a Strategic Planning Meeting

General advice on organizing a strategic planning meeting:

  • Capture notes from your meeting here on this Wiki. If there are concrete proposals, add them to the Call for Proposals.
  • Be sure to use a sign-in sheet and let us know who was there! (Fail: We forgot in Buenos Aries, but I think we can recreate it from the photos)
  • Other things to include: the graphic windows exercise; suggested discussion points

Use the meeting suggestions at Meetups/Plan a meetup as a starting point - but feel free to adjust or create new processes for your own group. The only requirement is that you share the results of your meetup with this wiki!
