Seraphim, Isaac, and I are working on developing MMCPost.com and would like input from the community on features / etc. Distributed project management is somewhat tricky, and distributed autonomous project management is, well...
So the first item is getting community input on general project structure. There's tons of management systems out there, so parts should be familiar to some, or some may be used to other terminology, etc. This would be overkill for most small or quick tasks, but MMC may have more and larger projects in the future....Community Project Plan
The team will have its own development site for brainstorming, and will maintain on-site forum threads as shown below. The first thread is for general management / status update advice and comments. A second "procurement" thread will be for general description, site features, and community requests - goals, requirements, etc. The third would be a "development" thread to outline technical details site implementation, and community technical input or advice.
The difference is difficult to describe without seeing an example, but we'll update and adapt as we go along.
- Community Project Plan - Project description
- Community Procurement Specification - Feature requests and site requirements
- Community Development Specification - Site specification and implementation
The team will have three lead volunteers. The Project Manager for execution and overall project coordination. The Community Manager for procurement management and site review. The Community Developer for technical lead and overall site implementation.
I've volunteered team members for those positions as follows:
- Project Manager - isaacgoldbourne
- Community Manager - MaxPWR
- Community Developer - Seraphim
Please provide any comments on project structure / terminology / etc.
I should have the "Procurement" thread written-up shortly.
