What am I doing and where am I in the process?

Here is the process I am pursuing:
  1. Identify the problem I want to work on COMPLETED. You may chuckle to hear I chose this topic by whittling a list of 130 issues down to 7, then to 2, then to this one.
  2. Define the issue in a way people will understand COMPLETED.
  3. Field test the definition to assess if sufficient people agree it is a meaningful problem. COMPLETED.
  4. Research current perspectives on the problem. COMPLETED initial survey, tho always ongoing
  5. Develop an initial Point of View defining the problem, its causes and potential solutions and what success ultimately looks like. COMPLETED.  See  here.
  6. Finalize list of who is working on the problem today and generally what are they doing. UNDERWAY, partially complete
  7. Engage with elements of those working on the problem, learn from them, evolve PoV, identify whether and how I can assist. NEXT
  8. Decide whether to work for an existing organization already addressing the problem, or begin a complimentary new initiative. UNDERWAY
  9. Execute.  Iterate.

Thoughts from across the aisle...

“On any issue, there are all these diverse viewpoints fighting each other, but how well do we truly understand why people think those different ways? And how are we to solve, if we don’t understand? [e.pluribnus.US’] Project LISTEN efficiently captures the reasons why people think what they do.”
