Tiki Vision 2012

Tiki is growing! At the TikiFest2008-Montreal-3 about 25 members of the tiki community participated in a visioning exercise to capture the goals and objectives, bottlenecks and opportunities suggested by community members.


Here are pictures of us using over 500 Post It Notes to create this list, Regis' photos of the brainstorm session

Please, please feel free to add further items or comments, this process has not stopped, it is on-going and we really need your comments and additions!

The following lists are the text of sticky notes that were posted on the wall. The outcome of this process is the Vision 2012 objectives.

These responses are answers to the question:

"How do we make Tiki more successful in the next 4 years"

Grouping Level 5.6 – Vision


Actions created:

StatementWho?
Define goalsKerrnel22
Draft mission/visionKerrnel22


Context:

On the surface, Goals and Mission/Vision are both very similar items. In the case of the discussion we had with the post-it notes listed below, all of the ideas centered around a forward-looking objective, but the more we specifically considered each idea, there were two clear categories that you could put them into. The first category was Defining Goals, which can be a list of things we wish to accomplish as part of the project. Goals can change; once you obtain a goal, you create another one to challenge the group to achieve. Generally the goals you come up with will support the overall mission/vision of the project. Think of it almost in a context of Good vs. Evil. Good's vision or mission is to defeat Evil and bring peace and harmony to existence. Its goals reflect the values of that vision and support it (convert evil to good, rid the world of evil publications, get more people to attend church, etc). Bringing the Goals into a more relevant context for us, some post-its that aspouse some goals we may want to achieve would be:

  • Clearly defined core features
  • New features
  • Regular releases
  • Have a welcoming committee
  • Tens of millions of installs


Looking at Drafting the Mission/Vision, we want to set the values and long-term direction for the project. Almost like a constitution. When we develop goals and other features over time, we should be asking what judges or lawmakers do: is this constitutional? Does this goal or feature agree with our mission or vision for the project? Specifically from the post-its, items that could define this are:

  • Clarity of vision
  • What about the kitchen sink?
  • Dog food
  • Keep close to the cutting edge of technology
  • Governance
  • Expand Wiki definition (perhaps a new buzzword?)
  • Promote Wiki centric solutions
  • Roadmap
