So I’m trying to redesign our circle governance structure and have made very little progress after some hours of brainstorming, rearranging, etc. any tips on things I can do to get unstuck?
Specific things I’m struggling with
- As founder and only full-time person in my all-volunteer organization, I do a lot that will need to break out into roles, but I don’t know when a role makes sense and where that role should live + how future role holders will collaborate when the functions no longer reside in the same person.
- How do you organize the relationships between fundraising, finance, memberships, partnerships, community events, communications, and technology infrastructure to manage all of that (contact relationship manager, accounting software, external comms platforms like Instagram and Mailchimp, online forum, ticketing, website)?
- How do you figure out when circles need to be sub-circles of one another or where some collaborations just need a space for knowledge transfer but their domains aren’t subsets of one another?
