Occassional thoughts about orienteering
Monday, December 06, 2010
My first look at the OUSA strategic planI spent a few minutes today looking at the OUSA Strategic Plan (PDF). Since I've been especially lazy about updating this blog, I was struck by one of the "metrics":
The Senior Team will generate new content on at least a twice monthly timeframe on its official blog: http://usa-orienteering.blogspot.com/
So, I took at look at the page and...well, the Senior Team has updated the page at least twice monthly three times in 2010 (January, June and October). There's only one update from the WOC (and that is from the sprint qualifying race). That's probably a good "metric" to either drop or, better yet, for the US Team to meet.

I guess it is possible. The plan itself indicates that the standing teams "have submitted individual team goals and metrics only", suggesting that the teams created the goals. I have a hard time imagining that the goal was set without the US Team's knowledge, but it is possible.
As the main poster to the blog, I can't say I remember any discussion about this. I read the strategic plan, but that's it. It sounds like a pretty reasonable metric to meet, we might as well try to do it.Post a Comment
