Wikimedia Deutschland: 2013 Annual Plan - projects edit

Note on the project descriptions edit

In 2012 Wikimedia Deutschland introduced a target-oriented approach to the composition of our Annual Plan. We have added another step to the forward planning for 2013 in order to define the results we want to achieve in the coming months more clearly. In the late fall of 2012, Wikimedia Deutschland’s general assembly adopted four annual goals for 2013. These goals are based on three key themes: focusing on the communities; increasing diversity of knowledge; and establishing free knowledge in society. The 2013 Annual Plan describes our goals, as well as a range of desired changes that will help us achieve these goals.

The formal description of these changes in the 2013 Annual Plan means we know precisely which results we are aiming for. We need clear project planning in order to find out how we can achieve these results in the most effective way. The following project descriptions provide brief summaries of the 22 projects with which Wikimedia Deutschland’s departments plan to meet the goals set out in the 2013 Annual Plan. This plan was published in November 2012. Each of the descriptions outlines a project and explains why this particular measure has been chosen to achieve the annual goals. The project descriptions also list milestones to be reached over the course of 2013.

List of changes and comments edit

We welcome comments on the individual project descriptions. Please send general questions and suggestions to this central discussion page.

As 22 project pages mean that we have 22 different discussion pages, it is something of a challenge to keep things straight! We have set up a page where all of the project headwords are linked (without any other links) as a reference point. If you click the following link, you will see a list of the changes to and comments on all 22 project descriptions:
