Enspiral Handbook
Activation Programme
This is an experiment that is currently being run with new contributors.

What is it for?

This programme aims is to support new contributors to become quickly active in the community through a "learning by doing" process. It consists in completing a list of easy / intermediate / hard challenges that will help any new contributor know more about Enspiral processes, people and culture.
What are the challenges?

What is the experiment process?

The experiment was kicked off at the beginning of sprint 30, with a loomio invitation to recruit initial voluntary participants. We will be holding fortnightly check-in threads in slack and tracking engagement with a monthly survey to get feedback from the participants.
Here are the success criteria we will be assessing:
    How many people opt in to the experiment
    How many challenges people complete
    How much all the participants felt part of the community after completing some/all challenges
    How easy to use all the participants found it
    How much support participants receive to complete the challenges.
This chapter will eventually be a whole section with different pages.
