One of the foundation Working Groups, the Strategic Working Group will research and provide recommendations to the board (and management committee) on the long-term activities of OSMF.

SWG pulls together interested parties from across the community in an attempt to provide a cohesive guidance to other working groups and the management team.

SWG does
  • Research the available options.
  • Provide guidance to other WGs and/or management task force.
  • Identifying opportunities for improvement in the activities of OSMF.
SWG does not
  • Handle operational issues, make decisions regarding funding allocation.
  • (is not required to) implement policy.

  • Steven Feldman
  • Chris Fleming
  • Henk Hoff (OSMF Board)
  • Tom Hughes
