What problem are you trying to solve?
To many communities have difficulties to have an excellent structure in working together into the same direction. More idealistic communities do not care about their backoffice, while complaining on the other end that there is no backoffice in place, That sounds like a paradox, but is it is with many organizations the daily-show. Excel sheets and mailing attachments to each-other while no one really know what had been decided and if there is budget left in the program. Furthermore, without a set of communication processes and the proper toolset, the need of an oldfashioned projectmanager is evident. While this structure, with all the agile and scrum type of workforces rising up in popularity, is not done anymore. We want to cooperate and share all of our values. We want to have a common toolset what supports our new way of working together!
