The PMPC team works on the FSFE's Public Money? Public Code! campaign. This involves multiple sub-projects. It consists of some staffers and awesome volunteers.
There are some projects attached to the PMPC campaign, for instance:
- a brochure directed at decision makers in politics and administration
- a directory and map of publicly financed Free Software
- interviews with key stakeholders in different areas
PMPC is a fast-moving activity. Therefore, we need a elaborated decision making structure which enables us to react quickly but at the same time allows to include useful feedback from other teams. We've chosen to adapt the well-known RAPID model for making important decisions. A decision could be whom to interview, how a website looks like, and whether a publication is final and can be sent to the printer.
Recommend: Project team, PMPC team
- Making a proposal on a key decision, gathering input, and providing data and analysis to make a sensible choice in a timely fashion
- Consulting with input providers — hearing and incorporating their views, and winning their buy-in
Agree: Project team leader, PMPC campaign coordinator, FSFE President (in case of politically sensible or highly important decisions)
- Negotiating a modified proposal with the recommender if they have concerns about the original proposal
- Escalating unresolved issues to the decider if the “A” and “R” can’t resolve differences
Input: PMPC team. If extra feedback is wished: FSFE Core team and external stakeholders
- Providing relevant facts to the recommender that shed light on the proposal’s feasibility and practical implications
Decide: PMPC campaign coordinator
- Serving as the single point of accountability
- Bringing the decision to closure by resolving any impasse in the decision-making process
- Committing the organisation to implementing the decision
Perform: Project team, with the help of the PMPC team
- Executing a decision once it’s made
- Seeing that the decision is implemented promptly and effectively
The "Project team" varies of course depending on the projects presented above. The PMPC team consists of many staffers, a few selected volunteers, and freelancers.
