We have reached our goal
Hello WE Workgroup members,
WE have completed what we set out to do (create a draft policy for Community Workgroups and submit to Council for approval). Council approved the policy on 13 Sept 2009. Well done everyone.
The first phase of our work is complete.
I suggest moving our 1st charter to the subpage Workgroup:WikiEducator_Workgroups/version 1 charter, retaining the main WE Workgroups page for the current charter (which will be a copy of version 1 with a new project plan).
Thoughts on this next course of action?
Does this workgroup have an on-going role? Or, is there some other group that continually monitors workgroup formation (e.g.) to check for duplication and cross-workgroup communication? Perhaps "many eyes" negates the need for this?
I don't think we've worked out how WE workgroups will work going forward. The immediate goal has been achieved. Thanks for the link to Linus' Law -- new idea for me. I think you are right that WE Workgroups isn't needed to check for duplication, etc. Hopefully the process creates an environment where "many eyes" will be effective. But I do see a continuing role for WE workgroups in helping groups--not sure yet what help might be needed or how it might work.
