We'll be announcing some next steps on strategy next week.
Brief preview: the schedule has changed somewhat, because we wanted to take
some more steps to be inclusive of staff feedback (has been underway for a
few weeks) and community feedback (starting next week). The timeline will
be tight, because we're trying to tie this into the annual plan process and
an FDC submission, but we hope this is the start of a healthier, young-term
process of annual planning and strategy.
Hope that helps?

slide outlining the new Strategic Planning process.
Amid general comments about how inclusive the process would be, that slide
indicates that the draft briefly introduced at that meeting was to be
finalized in December 2015, approved by the Board in January 2016, and
presented publicly in May 2016.
Can you confirm if that is actually the process underway? Are you on
Can you address (in this venue) whether a plan that is developed in
November and December by (at least some) staff, and presented publicly the
following May, can truly be more inclusive than the 2010 plan -- which
engaged 1,000 people, and took a year to complete, on an open wiki?
