We have reached our goal
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.
