The Hammer

What's wrong with GA's?

  • Not enough preparation from members
  • Not enough follow-up
  • Produces inconsistant or too complex statutes
  • Voting generates conflicts
  • Too punctual
  • Too heavy to prepare
  • Low participation rate

The Screwdriver

Which are the current problems in our organisation?

  • too much work to be done, not enough work being done
  • interested people are not integrated quick enough
    • Mumble permanence implemented
    • Newsletter soon back on track
    • Call to volunteers to answer to "" in the next assembly.

What can we do?

  • Organise an event (<- not really a screwdriver, more like a different hammer)
    • Determine clear goals and specify credible intermediate objectives
    • Focus on the objectives, not on the structure
    • Less content per event
    • Better follow-up (GetOp, crew meetings)
    • Voting frequency reduced by half
    • Events related with each others (each event introduces the next one)
    • Possibility to participate on-line or between the events
  • Organise the "First yearly questionnaire"
    • Ask people on their opinion of all topics which have (or have not) entered the discussions in the past year.
    • Go around the pirates and see what they're interested in, find their opinions for possible responses, see what they want to know from other pirates
    • Make it informative, non-binding by majority. It's a stimulus for discussion.
    • Make the results interactive
