Thinking about strategy from the perspective of openCCS, for 2012.

Vision for openCCS[edit]

  • Inform action and policy on CCS.
  • High visibility and wide participation by academia, industry and think tanks/institutes.

Goals[edit]

  • Wide participation
  • High quality resources

Outcomes[edit]

To achieve the goal of wide participation:

  • Participation should be easy.
  • Participation should be social.
  • The resource should create a sense that this is it is important and useful (mainly through actually being useful).
  • Create a connection between when people contribute, and getting feedback from people they recognize (even by username). A sense that "people I know will be reading this."
  • Build a community slowly and sustainably. (Note the community-building resources at The Pillar Summit, especially How Your Branded Community Can Succeed Where Others Fail; see also the links at Online communities.)

To achieve the goal of creating high quality resources:

  • Engage the best, most knowledgeable people
  • Engage a diverse range of knowledgeable people, such that gaps in knowledge by one group are covered by another
  • Ensure the review process is prompt and effective.


Strategy and how-to[edit]
