It’s outcomes that count; not process. The UUA board can’t seem to get that and constantly fall back into their management models per below.
No one cares. The outcomes look bad right now and I suspect when we see new numbers they’ll look worse. Please, let’s get priorities right. Backing #Occupy damaged UU Identity far more than this process is doing anything to protect it.
Though I am happy with the outcome of the vote, I am happier still with the process we went through to get there. The ideas behind the transfer started with the Panel itself, the policy crafted with the help of the Panel chair (Rob Eller-Isaacs). The operational definition was a collaborative process that brought out the best of our respective board/staff roles.
This is how Policy Governance should work.
