Working together non-hierarchical collaborative group that wants to take important decisions together means we depend on each other a lot.
Doing all this in our free time also means that we need to consciously set some time apart to live up to our commitment to make this work. With most people leading very busy lives I have the impression that the combination of all the treads, proposals and documents can easily become overwhelming.
The solution I would like to try out is a document called “updates”. This would be a document that includes all the essential things that happened in The Reef since the last update. This will include the plenary meetings, news from the Teams, things everybody needs to do etc.
So if you would have been on a 3-week business trip to Mars, upon your return you would only need to check two documents to be up-to-date on the essentials:
- The “agenda and minutes” document from the plenary meetings
- The “updates” document
If you have more time, the next source of information would be the Edgeryders forum, where we document and exchange on things that are relevant for the entire group.
@reeflings: Would you be willing to do the following?
- Have a look at the first update (internal link) and catch up if needed (especially the “to do” part and the plenary meeting)
- Provide me with some feedback in the thread below. It could be lenghty and detailed, or just a couple of words, whatever feels good.
This would meet my need to know that everybody is still on board. TIA!
