Strategic Planning Report on the Survey Workgroup

The Strategic Planning Committee is pleased to announce that we have completed the Survey Workgroup report.

You can download the report as a PDF from the OTW website.

About this report

To write this report, we surveyed the Survey Workgroup volunteers and leads, and conducted follow-up interviews with those who wished to speak with us further.

Everything in the report is based on the data we collected. The responses we collected were synthesized into this report, which summarizes the strengths and challenges Survey Workgroup volunteers noted in their responses, and makes recommendations for change based on their suggestions. More information about our process is included in the report itself.

Before coming to you, the report has been reviewed by 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.


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.

Upcoming reports

The next scheduled reports are on the Wiki Committee and Fanlore team, the Grants Committee, and the Systems Committee. We hope to release those in early 2014. Ultimately, we will release a final report that synthesizes all of the data we received across the entire organization.
