The problem and project definition bits from Mozilla's open leadership training is pretty useful for part 1: https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1bCOAoLrNtRVuTt0dtOwsnzbclbGTvWUkcdzk-o8iJeM/.

For example, here's the project vision step that is between figuring out what i'm doing and filling out a canvas:

Brainstorm answers to these questions:

    1. Who you’re working with, or hope to work with
    1. What you’re doing
    1. Who you’re doing it for, your audience (may be same as b)
    1. Why you’re doing this, the impact or change you hope to make

Put your answers together in a short statement:
I’m working with [community, allies, contributors] to [make, build, teach, or do something] so that [audience, end users, consumers, community members] can [do something different, achieve a goal]

Following that, here's the long form description of using their Open Canvas: https://mozilla.github.io/open-leadership-training-series/articles/opening-your-project/develop-an-open-project-strategy-with-open-canvas/

Overall, though, I think Mozilla's site for this is fairly comprehensive: https://mozilla.github.io/open-leadership-training-series/

Wanna test it?

When creating new issues, I suggest we immediately add a "Help Wanted" tag so it can show up here: http://civicissues.codeforamerica.org/geeks/civicissues

And our latest projects with an Open Austin repo should soon show up here: http://brigade.codeforamerica.org/brigade/projects

We can immediately direct people to check these two sites as well as our repos specifically for finding similar efforts. Unfortunately, the issues one is not searchable, but I submitted a PR to fix that. In the meantime, we can fork it to embed on our site, along with an embedded project finder. That would probably be a weekend hack day's worth of work, but it'd translate to more cross-brigade or at least cross-project exploration and (hopefully) collaboration. By the way, this is one practical example of "knowledge matching" I was talking about @amaliebarras

  1. @werdnanoslen but what if the project doesn't have an active leader? I worry about asking for help and then not having anyone to guide the team / volunteers. We should only be asking for help on projects that are moving forward / actively being managed IMO... and if not there's that "needs leadership" tag.

I like the idea but that's one issue we've always had, is people coming to hack nights excited to work on project that the champions either don't exist or aren't present to help.

  1. Cool! So to clarify, is that what the help wanted tag does? Or did you set up some other configuration to make that happen?

  2. Awesome idea, sounds like a great resource for finding forkable projects. Thanks for implementing :)

just to document here what we discussed yesterday:

scratch the help wanted tag, that project is abandoned by CfA and we can make our own fork for the website. We can choose the labels

@werdnanoslen there was a need expressed at the previous CHS about projects being tagged with their "tech stack" ie: reactjs, angularjs, angular2, php, mongodb, sql, c#, python etc

Your thoughts?

I think this has been captured in the new project idea template. We can make new issues targeting more specific outcomes we want, but I think the original intent of this issue has been completed.

@werdnanoslen werdnanoslen removed this from the This month milestone Sep 30, 2017
