Structural Core of the Community
What makes the Structural integrity of a community?
- community lead is there to support their goals
- what is the root of "lack of motivation" in self or organization or community
- decipher and analysis to understand the foundations and the strength of the core
- identify the core of community; then we know foundation start to fix the items
- how to identify the foundations and how can we evaluate what to fix
- what are the vectors for the space?
- are you comfortable with foundations : confidence in core structure of Community and that you can you fix them; there will always be problems, but what are the headlines
- Is there confidence -ethos and underpinning roles?
- Ubuntu, Debian, Fedora and Linux have defined roles
- how to make these explicit: might change mood
- people and mission aligned
- confidence in those people to deliver
- people and ethos
- resilience -continues on despite issues
- resilience -people who are more broad ; deeply connected to ethos
*mission= DNA of community; unified perspective
- values keep things in check
- right people to implement it - values with capabilities
- people sometimes leave because they think the values aren't there
- reinforce values is key to reinforce the mission
- interactions and values - which is the truth serum
- are all the people plugged onto the mission?
- transparent and inline to mission?
- understanding between teams will help you with that mission: especially when problems arise; not just during crisis
- common values
- automatic has all staff do tech support first to learn the software. This ingrains the mission
- Ubuntu even did this with the community volunteers: not passive, but asked people to do x to support the community as a whole. eg. developers assist with docs or other non-tech community support
