This is a quick announcement of the creation of the Transition Ideas Team (TIT) a new ZM team that Scott Wrampler and Michael Kubler are currently helping kick start.
For those who are interested here’s a recent Blog Talk Radio show regarding the team which talks about the organisational structure and some of the initial teams. It’s only 30mins long.
The team will be split into 3 main groups :
- Transition Proposals
- Proposal Analysts
The Admin staff will be a small group who run the website, organise the tools and help co-ordinate the other two groups.
The Transition Proposals group will be a collection of people who, working alone or together, come up with various transition models then propose them.
The Proposal Analysts are those who are knowledgeable within their field and as a group can analyse the proposal and undertake useful critical analysis and highlight potential issues and also make suggestions or reccomendations.
The process of submitting, analysing and refining a proposal will itself need to be developed and refined over time. One of the hardest parts of the process will be removing human bias, especially those which are predictable. An example may be that proposals are to be made anonymous before being presented to the proposal analysts. Once the analysts have provided feedback and the proposal refined the proposal can then be presented on the website for further analysis and discussions with the wider public.
It’s possible that the team may itself change from being about transition ideas, to be a Transition Implementation team (or more likely, a group of teams).
If you have any transition ideas or suggestions then feel free to comment or email email@example.com
