Strategic Plan/Movement Priorities


Publication: 2010-05-22


Since July 2009, more than a thousand people have participated in a Wikimedia movement-wide strategic planning process. The goal was to develop a set of movement-wide priorities over the next five years. In order to achieve this goal, there was a tremendous amount of brainstorming, research, deep deliberation, and analysis. In February 2010, a group of volunteers who have been deeply engaged in the strategic planning process formed a Strategy Task Force to try to synthesize the strategic planning work into the set of movement priorities articulated on this page. Now, our hope is to recruit many broader groups of people to discuss and refine these ideas, so that we may finalize this draft by the end of May 2010. In June 2010, we're going to circulate these priorities as widely as possible and encourage those who support them to sign it.

Please help by doing the following: * Read the guidelines on crafting good priorities. * Read the research and analysis on the Wikimedia-pedia page. Refer back often. None of these priorities are arbitrary. They are the result of significant research, analysis, and discussion, and it's helpful to become as familiar as possible with this work as you think about the movement priorities. * Post your thoughts and questions on Talk:Strategic Plan/Movement Priorities. * Be bold in editing and refining this page, and stay engaged in the discussion.
