I am posting to this blog the two posts I made to the NSTIC IDESG governance list on Tuesday. Here is the first one on Governing “us” (that is the word “us” not U.S.)
I only got on the [governance] list over the weekend despite raising my hand to be a part at some point in the Chicago meetings.
I am working to track all that is being discussed and I also want to breath and step back a bit. I want to share two bigger challenges and perspectives.
First Challenge how are we we connecting/structuring and governing the interested stakeholders who ARE showing up to engage. How are we as Bob just asked creating ways, systems, processes and tools forward to create alignment and agreement?
Second Challenge How are we meaningfully and regularly checking in with those outside the community of self selected stakeholders – to regular citizens who have to use the currently broken systems we have today and hopefully will be enthused and inspired to adopt the outcomes of this whole effort?
They are two quite different but related challenges. This e-mail will deal with challenge 1. The next one with Challenge 2.
