Measures of success[edit]

Lessons learned[edit]

What lessons were learned that may help others succeed in similar projects? Extensive notes and documentation was prepared for the planning meeting, which can be accessed here: wmau:January 2010 Operational planning meeting

What impact did the project have on WMF mission goals of Increased Reach, Increased Quality, Increased Credibility, Increased and Diversified Participation? No direct impact on these goals, although it can be argued that getting better organised and improving the professionalism of the chapter's operations has allowed the chapter to more effectively deliver in increasing reach, quality, and credibility. The major expense against this grant, the Melbourne face-to-face meeting, while not having any great success in itself, provided a good groundwork for the chapter's second attempt at drafting a strategic plan, which was much more successful.
