What did the New York Public Library do that the Foundation doesn't
already do in their ordinary course of action? "The three core teams
were given a month to present to senior leaders options for their
experiments, and the capabilities needed to try them." That sounds
like business as usual at the WMF.

I have specific questions about this week's strategy announcement; in
particular:

"A general layer of meaning that sits right below the Vision" is the
Mission. I am certain that the Foundation doesn't want to dictate a
Movement strategy at variance with or supplanting the Mission. So why
not declare that the Mission already is the de facto Strategic
Direction and save the time and money to re-do it for implementing the
recommendations of previous strategy work?

Seriously: these strategic directions from 10 years ago still need work:

And what happened to the Recommendations from the past couple years'
strategy work?

Can we use the ratio of FTE hours working on new strategy projects and
those working on prior strategic goals and recommendations as a
measurable key performance indicator in a way that encourages
accomplishing prior recommendations and developing new ones in a way
that doesn't lead to discarding work?
