Quote from: contracycleIt has been tried on this and other fora. The problem is always the same: nobody really owns responsibility for the design. As a result, as ideas diverge through discussion, membership and interest fall off as possibilities are ruled out; usually it trails off to end with a whimper.
Quote from: Andrew MorrisYeah, I think James is on the right track with his suggestions. I think the most important thing to avoid the project just fading away is to have someone who is in charge of the project, authorised by the group to make final decisions and arbitrate any disputes.
Quote from: Tyrantyou'd want to make sure that these mini groups didn't conflict with each other. Having three or four groups instead of one large one can lead to massive errors in communication.
Quote from: jdrakehThat is what project supervisors/leads are for - it's there job to act as a liason between the smaller groups and to keep all of them up to speed, making sure that each of the stays on the same page. Alternately, an actual liason position could be created to deal with inter-departmental schism.
Quote from: TyrantIsn't that a bit complicated?
