5. Next steps on Serving on the PT policy
Starting again again
A document for Process “teaming”
The text is a sum of guidelines and references. The All PT don’t have to agree with the whole text; it is presented as a continual process of reflecting. Only the new proposals at the end, especially concerning the term, are the object of an agreement. The sociocratic process entails gathering feedback and comments, as a way of building the proposal further.
On next all PT meeting, we are going to gather feedback and comments on this text. It will be joined to the reminder call.
7. May All-PT call –
Could be described as an inquiry process in a conversation format
Present the object of the conversation ( and the text of presentation) and introduce Peter whom we asked to tell us something on his view and the view of the Board on the PT and may be also their appreciation.
Question :How is the PT be helpful and how it could be helpful in the future?
