This is an experiment that is currently being run with new contributors.
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?
join a working group
give feedback on the activation programme
attend an in person enspiral event
interview an old timer
Enspiral culture and ideas
write a blog post
create a loomio thread
share something that excites you on Facebook group / watercooler channel
update the handbook
create an improvement ticket
create a bucket in cobudget
get paid from a bucket
complete an improvement ticket (alone or with someone else)
steward a new contributor through the activation programme
find paying work for someone enspiral
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.
