Marcus from Wikimedia Deutschland
- Board change every year
- so there are papers for this
- main goal is a light weight strategy (understandable) in a living document
- interviews to find out what people think about Wikimedia Germany
- its easy to get lost in definitions
- WMDE decided against external consultants
- Drafting things takes a lot of time, fighting a lot about wordings and meaning of wordings
- strategy for four years, and assess the strategy after one year. the strategy should be "living"
- searching for an inclusing way for this
- Has anyone worked with external consultants? Was it effective?
- How do you make use of external consultants?
- How much time did you take, and what stakeholders do you work with?
- How do we do strategy inclusively?
- How do we collaborate across chapters, etc?
- What level of strategy do you work with--a framework (WMUK) or a planning doc, etc.
- Strategy pre/post Executive Director employment?
- What kind of strategy levels are existing?
- What do we do with annual plan activities which don't fit into our (or WMF) strategy?
- What points do we set targets for?
- How and when do you engage community?
- What question should we ask to get people to participate (not "what should our strategy be?")
