[Wikimedia-l] Movement Strategy: New roles for working group members, synthesis underway, and more

Nicole Ebber
Hi everyone,

I’m happy to share an overview of what’s been happening in movement
strategy lately.

== New roles and bringing the recommendations together ==
From now until the end of the year, the focus will be on identifying
the overlaps in the 89 recommendations produced by the nine thematic
area working groups. The goal here is to create one synthesized set of
recommendations and an accessible, digestible Movement Strategy
document to be shared publicly in January.

To do this, we asked working group members in October to let us know
if they’d be interested in continuing to contribute to the Wikimedia
2030 Movement Strategy in one of the following roles: Writer,
connector, or reviewer.[1]

15 have signed up to be writers, 10 as connectors, and 17 as
reviewers. Writers will look for overlaps and similarities in the
existing content to see where multiple recommendations could be merged
and unified. Connectors will work closely with writers to help them
improve and expand the content and assess how and where to best
integrate phase 1 material, research, and community input. Reviewers
will go through the synthesized recommendations and provide specific
additional perspectives, expertise, contexts, and advice as needed.

The writers are currently in a high period of activity, which began in
early November and will run through December, with ongoing support
from the connectors. Alongside bringing together the existing
recommendations, they are also defining principles that underpin and
guide the content of these recommendations. The writers will come
together in Berlin in the first week of December to work intensively
on consolidating the recommendations and finalize the work.

== Next steps ==
When the synthesized recommendations are ready and published in early
2020, a final round of movement conversations will take place.
Movement stakeholders will have a chance to understand the path
towards these recommendations and to review the semi-final document.
The final recommendations will be presented to the Board of Trustees
in March and subsequently to the movement for approval. The first step
towards implementation will be discussing prioritization and
sequencing of the recommendations, as well as agreeing upon
responsibilities for bringing each recommendation to life.[2]

We’ll keep you posted on future developments and more concrete steps
towards approval here and on Wikimedia Space, so stay tuned!

Best wishes,
Nicole

Yaroslav Blanter
The recommendations must be first presented to the movement (and,
specifically, to the project communities) for approval, and only them
whatever will be approved, can be presented to the Board,

The reverse sequence will likely result in outright rejection of
recommendations by the editing communities and further alienation WMF from
the communities.

Best
Yaroslav

Philip Kopetzky
Yaroslav, the recommendations have always come with the caveat that the
actual implementation depends on the communities implementing them
themselves, adapting them to fit the needs of a specific community.
