Management delegate? Don't forget, this is a leaderless, decentralized experiment. Who gives authority to this manager? Why should other delegates obey this delegate? The idea with the delegate system is that the best will be voted in by the stakeholders. If one delegate is failing and another potential delegate is doing a better job he should be voted in if he can communicate this effectively to the stakeholders. If the community feels like a role is needed and it doesn't exist then they will vote the best candidate in for this role. Management denotes hierarchy which is something we are trying to minimize as much as possible at the top level. This is really brand new exciting territory here! Sure, individual teams can and do have structure and hierarchy within them, but there should be no hierarchy across the top level of this DAC.
Management delegate, no. Communications delegate, perhaps.
I agree we need better roadmaps and we should improve our communication. Right now this is handled individually by the delegates. One of the problems is that there is so much stuff going on right now and so many different teams and individuals working in different areas and several sources of information about this that it can be hard for the casual observer to grasp all the goings on. The delegates that do not communicate effectively will probably be replaced by others of similar skill level that are better communicators. Don't forget we are still very close to the beginning of this experiment. We will evolve and get better at this over time.
One potential idea right now for example that I see would be for someone to create a site where all the delegates can have their own section to post details of what they have accomplished so far, what they are currently working on with regular updates, what their proposed business plans are, finances, budgets etc. The best delegates should rise to the top.Edit
: Also, like gamey, I saw the word management and jumped to the wrong conclusion looking back. Looks like we are in agreement then
However, I believe this sort of thing should be in a User Generated Content style. If one delegate is reporting on others, how will they report on themselves? They will also have bias on reporting others. Even if they try their very hardest to not be biased, there will always be some bias. I say let the delegates report themselves, but give them better structure in which to do so.
