Batched Amendment - Strategy and Resource Director Proposal
Thanks for laying this out Vidale, I appreciate it. Follow-up questions to dig deeper:

[QUOTE="WB, post: 31387, member: 175"]
Factom organizes itself into a small council that’s representative of the many areas it is serving. The classical: tech, outreach, governance. Or stakeholder-focused: users, ANOs, token holders.
[/QUOTE]
For clarification, how are these council members elected? What is the high-level process?

[QUOTE="WB, post: 31387, member: 175"]
As for decision-making internally, personality and experience will always determine how decisions are made. Any reasonable council will give a C-level member the biggest say in a situation that calls for it, but again, it needs to be in the spirit of getting things done together, shoulder to shoulder.
[/QUOTE]
For clarification, how exactly does voting occur? For example:

1. Do the three council members vote on every decision and the majority wins?
2. Do the three council members 100% defer to the C-Level person?
3. When does the council overrule the C-Level executive?
4. What happens when all three council members have a differing opinion about something such as which C Level to hire? Or what the tokenomics should be? Or which grants should be funded?

[QUOTE="WB, post: 31387, member: 175"]
The council recruits top talent. Internally and/or externally. At least one C-level executive manager preferred. Internally, each member may have full control over its designated day-to-day business, but the council is mutually accountable for results.
[/QUOTE]
So the assumption is that a C-Level executive will be interested in reporting to a council potentially composed of individuals with no experience actually having built a business, correct? Even worse, a council member could simply be a person that is a token holder that is popular on Discord. Yet, a qualified C Level will still be interested in this role, correct?

Is expecting a qualified C-Level person to take orders from an inexperienced council realistic?

[USER=106]@mboender[/USER] Would anyone from Sphereon be interested in this structure? Could you please explain why or why not? Thank you.

[QUOTE="WB, post: 31387, member: 175"]
So yes, under a council we will drive a community-backed roadmap so we don’t run into any longer-term efficiency & cohesion problems.
[/QUOTE]
Just to clarify, is the community determining the roadmap? Or is it the Council? Or is it the C-Level person(s)?

[QUOTE="WB, post: 31387, member: 175"]
There’s a lot of work to be done. Probably too much work for one person to be involved in everything. In theory, sure, a CEO is a key enabler. And in theory, sure, a CEO is great for coaching underlying teams. But we’re not dealing with theory, we’re dealing with reality.
[/QUOTE]
1. Isn't it "reality" though that CEOs have literally built every single one of the 10,000 largest companies in the world?

2. Following up on that, are there any real-world business examples of a council similar to the one you are suggesting having succeeded?

Thanks in advance!
