If you go to all of the trouble to establish goals and objectives with teams - even all volunteer teams, then it behoves you to ensure that you follow-up with those teams and establish their success, partial success, or failure in accomplishing those goals and objectives before you go down the path of establishing new goals and objectives.

Back in May, 2011, Paul Orwig published the goals and objectives of the PLT (Production Leadership Team), the CLT (Community Leadership Team), and OSM (Open Source Matters). Now in late October, Paul is calling for setting new goals and budgets for 2012 but he is not calling first for how those teams did against their 2011 goals so far. This is simply a complete failure of the OSM board and its leadership in ensuring that the goals and objectives actually mean something and are not simply slid into a drawer somewhere and forgotten.

On October 18, 2011, Paul Orwig who had originally started a discussion group on September 29, 2011 about Proposed leadership structure changes & request for community feedback posted in the Google Joomla Leadership public group that he was thinking of closing discussion on the proposal even though he committed originally to leave discussion open until October 27, 2011. Immediately, more discussion ensued. At the time he was proposing to shut down discussion there were 157 posts. As of today, Friday, October 21, 2011 at 1:17 pm CDT, there are 186 posts. Interestingly enough those 186 posts were placed by only 23 individuals. And, of those 23 individuals, only 16 are not members of the OSM Board, the Community Leadership Team, or the Production Leadership Team. Besides the obvious observation that very few of the community have weighed in with their opinions, very few of the various leadership team members have weighed in with theirs either.
