  • Deliverables discussion (Stefan):

1. 'functioning': sociocratic; autocratic; etc, 'style'. Clarity which decisions made by what method and by whom.

(proposed delineation: decisions that get made by LT/board rather than by M&V alone:

...a) Hiring of senior staff

...b) Creation of new organizational components

...c) Dedication of substantial financial resouces (>$10k?)

...d) definition of strategic priorities, to be refined further in discussion, just wanted to offer this list as a start)

2. management team 'setup': clarity in relation to roles already delineated.

3. strategic detailing (priority & how / who/ resources): know how will we fulfill strategic priotities, next steps and plan.

4. financial plan: self-finance vs. invest / consequences/ outcomes.

  • Observer policy for LT meetings (John 30 min.).
