Strategic Planning Report 1: Tag Wrangling

The Strategic Planning Committee is pleased to announce that we have completed our first committee report (available as a PDF), which summarizes and analyzes the results of our survey of the Tag Wrangling Committee and team.

To write this report, we surveyed the Tag Wrangling staff and volunteers, interviewed the chair, surveyed former Tag Wrangling staff and volunteers who had chosen to leave the team and/or the organization, and conducted follow-up interviews with any volunteer or staff who wished to speak with us further. All responses we collected were synthesized into this report, which summarizes the strengths and challenges Tag Wrangling volunteers and staff (both current and former) noted in their responses, and makes some recommendations for change based on their suggestions. Everything in the report is based on the data we collected. More information about our process is included in the report itself.

Before coming to you, the report has been reviewed by the Tag Wrangling Committee and the Board, and copyedited by the Communications Committee. The purpose of this was to correct any factual errors we might have made and to solicit feedback before the wider release. No data collected from any surveys or interviews were changed or removed from the report as a result of these reviews.

Over the next several months, we will continue to survey committees and release reports. The next report you should see will be the results of our survey of the Volunteers and Recruiting Committee. Ultimately we will release a final report that synthesizes all of the data we received across the entire organization.

We hope that you find the report interesting, and very much welcome your feedback! If you have any questions or wish to contact the committee, get in touch with us through our contact form. Please note that this report incorporates internal stakeholders only, so while public comments on this post will be read and discussed (and possibly taken into account for future reports, as well as the next round of strategic planning), external stakeholder opinion will not be incorporated into future revisions of this report.

All contact we receive is kept to a high standard of confidentiality, and we’d be happy to discuss that with you if you have any concerns.
