@MGerlach Please review your Q2 goals under Confirmed in Description and let me know here if they're good to go. Notes on my end:

  • I may have one more item related to knowledge gaps for you. let's discuss in our 1:1 this week.
  • I didn't explicitly capture the work with the Editing team as a goal. This is intentional, partly because that is still part of your onboarding project and I'd rather keep the space fail-safe in case we need to change the problem (especially because there are ambiguities in the problem statement there.)

@Isaac Please review your goals under "Confirmed" and update. A couple of notes:

  • Taxonomy of Content Gaps: It's unclear to me what we can commit to right now (I reviewed our 1:1 conversations). For Q2, I'd like us to commit to come up with a operationalizable proposal for taxonomy of knowledge gaps, plus a couple of areas we know people in the team will work on: readership gaps (you), usage/access/readership gap (Martin via search taxonomies) and the taxonomy of the causes of content gaps (Jonathan), along with some more lit review Jonathan may do (we're working to finalize that). I won't add more commitments by you on the "content gaps" fronts. If you disagree, please propose a concrete goal. Happy to discuss.
