The recommendations must be first presented to the movement (and,
specifically, to the project communities) for approval, and only them
whatever will be approved, can be presented to the Board,

The reverse sequence will likely result in outright rejection of
recommendations by the editing communities and further alienation WMF from
the communities.

> Hi everyone,
> I’m happy to share an overview of what’s been happening in movement
> strategy lately.
> == New roles and bringing the recommendations together ==
> From now until the end of the year, the focus will be on identifying
> the overlaps in the 89 recommendations produced by the nine thematic
> area working groups. The goal here is to create one synthesized set of
> recommendations and an accessible, digestible Movement Strategy
> document to be shared publicly in January.
> To do this, we asked working group members in October to let us know
> if they’d be interested in continuing to contribute to the Wikimedia
> 2030 Movement Strategy in one of the following roles: Writer,
> connector, or reviewer.[1]
> 15 have signed up to be writers, 10 as connectors, and 17 as
> reviewers. Writers will look for overlaps and similarities in the
> existing content to see where multiple recommendations could be merged
> and unified. Connectors will work closely with writers to help them
> improve and expand the content and assess how and where to best
> integrate phase 1 material, research, and community input. Reviewers
> will go through the synthesized recommendations and provide specific
> additional perspectives, expertise, contexts, and advice as needed.
> The writers are currently in a high period of activity, which began in
> early November and will run through December, with ongoing support
> from the connectors. Alongside bringing together the existing
> recommendations, they are also defining principles that underpin and
> guide the content of these recommendations. The writers will come
> together in Berlin in the first week of December to work intensively
> on consolidating the recommendations and finalize the work.
> == Next steps ==
> When the synthesized recommendations are ready and published in early
> 2020, a final round of movement conversations will take place.
> Movement stakeholders will have a chance to understand the path
> towards these recommendations and to review the semi-final document.
> The final recommendations will be presented to the Board of Trustees
> in March and subsequently to the movement for approval. The first step
> towards implementation will be discussing prioritization and
> sequencing of the recommendations, as well as agreeing upon
> responsibilities for bringing each recommendation to life.[2]
> We’ll keep you posted on future developments and more concrete steps
> towards approval here and on Wikimedia Space, so stay tuned!
> Best wishes,
