Global Operations Team 2019 - Call for contribution

AB Alexandre Bigot-Verdier Public Seen by 36

Hello dear ouishare connectors,

In 2018, a small team of connectors from different communities gathered regularly in order to manage tasks related to the commons of the global ouishare community.
This team was initially gathered by @francesca, composed of : @auli, @esratat, @helenevuaroqueaux, @anamanli, @saraheisenmann, @manuelayamada, @ehabelia and myself.
This work have especially been documented in this post (https://www.loomio.org/d/JT04Amrb/global-budget-2018-validation).
It was the first time in ouishare (short) history that so many people took collectively transversal responsabilities and that we were able to directly finance it. Before that; it was done only by @francesca who was paid by other projects.

The objectives of this team are :
- mapping the commons of ouishare
- budgeting how much we need to maintain them and find this money from local communities
- working on a global strategy for ouishare (not really been done in 2018)
- proposing this work on summits and loomio for global approbation

As we would like this process to be the more open possible, this is a call to contribute to the 2019 team.
The 2018-team takes the engagement of training the new ones until december and working with them on a global process that will be published here, asking for a clear mandate from the global community.

Edit from @esratat :
Being part of the global ops team is a great way to see how OS "works" :) (and it's worth joining even if you feel like you're a bit too "new" as a Connector.)

You can find the roles that have been financed in 2018 in the budget : https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/17plMldy8pq1395RCRuPK_T0e6OESMbdTDouKQVQkgC4/edit

So, who's in ?

This work is immense and so important. A big thank you to the team :) I will not be able to join as my focus in Ouishare for the coming months is to support local communities in Brussels and India.

Hi guys! Just to add to what Alex said above: being part of the global ops team is a great way to see how OS "works" :) (and it's worth joining even if you feel like you're a bit too "new" as a Connector.) <3

Thanks @alexbigver for taking this forward with so much clarity and hard work. And big thanks to everyone who joined the first round of the distributed ops team - it's been quite a journey to "decentralizing" this work and we're still learning a lot on how to make it even better :)

Hey Alex! As a new connector I’ll be glad to join the team for this work in 2018-2019 and get closer to the ouishare practices. I’ll be working hard to help the community to progress! Btw it would be an honour to have you as a teacher! I’ll be available as soon as needed ;-)

Elena Giroli Fri 3 Aug 2018 3:33PM

hi Alex, i was going through the notes and i'm reflecting on this. how much time, you rekon, could this role take on a weekly/monthly base in terms of commitment and scaffolding/operational tasks?

AB

Alexandre Bigot-Verdier Sun 5 Aug 2018 8:26AM

Hello Elena. It depends on the role, the descriptions are written for you to imagine but I would say that you have to be ready to spend half a day per month.

Amanda Jansen Wed 8 Aug 2018 9:21AM

Hi Alexandre, sorry for responding so late. I would be interested in a strategy part, but saw many operational parts in the roles and didn't get the time to look at it very well chasing the tenders. Let's catch up if it is still welcome.

Stina Heikkila Fri 10 Aug 2018 7:26AM

Hello @alexbigver ! As mentioned in my connector re-introduction, I'd be happy to support this work. I cannot access the roles yet (ping @auli ) , but pretty open to work according to needs. Sorry that I'm a bit late in the game, but just let me know.

Alicia Fri 10 Aug 2018 7:37AM

Hi Alex, if you still need another helping hand i'll be happy to join!

Alexandre Bigot-Verdier Wed 22 Aug 2018 7:28PM

Hello Everyone!

Coming back from holidays, I am happy to see that @stinaheikkila @rammelaere and @pierrelaurentsalin jumped in the boat; that @aliciatrepat is OK to join the boat but not completely sure and that @ehabelia is so well in the boat that he wants to remain there! I plan a meeting in the next few days and we keep you informed here!

Thanks to those who took the time to answer, even if it was "no"!

I switch to slack for internal coordinnation

Alicia Wed 22 Aug 2018 8:09PM

I'm very happily jumping in the boat and very convinced =)
