Email TPG strategy outcome (and maybe lessons learned too) to stakeholders
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Now that we have published a 2-pager summary on wiki[1], should we send an email to everyone who we invited into one of our conversations?

This is a follow-up from T131100: Document and justify the choice of Improved Status Quo based on results of Q3 strategy tests

Event Timeline

KLans_WMF moved this task from To Triage to General backlog on the Team-Practices board.
KLans_WMF added a subscriber: KLans_WMF.

Might be nice to tack on the "What we learned about P2W" retro notes when we send this out.

DRAFT EMAIL:

To: ??

Subject: Update on Team Practices Group Strategy process

Body:

Hello all,

I'd like to share the final outcome of the TPG strategy process with you. The voices of our stakeholders in the organization factored deeply into our decision - thank you for participating!

tl;dr - we're sticking with status quo. That is, we will not make any significant changes to how we currently operate. However, being TPG, we plan to make incremental adjustments to how we work, based on what we learned.

You can read a summary of our decision and rationale here: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Team_Practices_Group/Strategy_process_FY2016/Decision_and_lessons

We've also documented what we learned from the process here: [link TBD, dependent on finishing T133928: Email TPG strategy outcome to stakeholders? ].

Thanks again, onward!

Looks good (subject to the "what we learned" stuff. And I might add at the end of the tl;dr something like "However, being TPG, we plan to adjust how we work, based on what we learned."

For the "to", I would propose: Everyone we invited to a strategy-related test meeting, including our agile skeptics.
