Please do not make any suggestions concerning the contents of the international strategy here (use the other subpages of International Strategy instead).
I would like to give some feedback …
… on the prioritization concept
In practice, a prioritization with 29 levels is not only very time-consuming and extremely confusing. This linear structure also produces a distorted result. Assuming that from one person 80% of the proposals are considered unimportant, this cannot be illustrated with this concept and the majority of proposals would have to be given a too high priority. For me this is a design flaw where the actual process of prioritization should be stopped for a redefinition. Why don't ask for a 5 or 10 step prioritization for each item? This would also be possible with many survey tools – e.g. LimeSurvey – to display and query online quite simply and clearly.
… on the prioritisation question
The question posed about the importance leads to a hierarchical weighting which corresponds structurally to the concept of homo Oeconmicus. The question of personal interest or even the question in which area one would get involved, would create a different quality in the result: Resources could be better invested in areas in which it also meets resonance and leads to action.
…on the schedule
Most regional groups and hubs meet or exchange views on a monthly basis. In addition, there were Easter holidays. Many were therefore excluded from participation from the outset by this tight schedule.
All members – at least in Germany - were also invited to discuss the international strategy via the membership list in Dezember 2018.
The Invitation to prioritize was only send to the regional groups and hubs.
