After opening a community comment period in early April this year,
collecting and incorporating that feedback, we are happy to announce that
the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees has approved our Medium Term
Plan for 2019-2023! You can view the final version here:
This process wouldn’t have been possible without communities’
participation, and we want to thank each of you for taking the time away
from doing your favorite thing on the wikis to comment on our
organization’s plan for the next 5 years. This new process, which we
implemented for the first time this year, allows us to plan for a longer
time frame It also gives us a more flexible structure for annual planning
that allows us to incorporate recommendations from the movement strategy.
Today, we are publishing both the Wikimedia Foundation’s Medium-term Plan
and our annual budget and plan for the fiscal year 2019-20. This 2019-20
plan is the first instance in this new planning process, and over the next
5 years, we will continue to create plans that focus on the priorities we
identified. We will review the progress towards our annual goals on a
quarterly basis, and continue to share these reports publicly.
We hope to continue these conversations and collaboration as we work
towards our strategic direction.
