Committee Refactor Proposal
I’m not sure making the committees broader is the right medicine. I think the problem is that we haven’t clearly defined their roles and responsibilities within the overall governance structure. For any committee to be effective, you have to define the desired inputs and outputs – i.e. what are they supposed to achieve? Committees should only exist when they are deemed the most efficient way to execute a given task. The problem is, we haven’t defined that task.
If the goal is more discussion, then broadening the committees may help, but if the goal is more effective action, we probably need to define their function more specifically. This should also help with operational efficiency. By clearly defining what each committee is responsible for, it should reduce the overlap.
