To work towards these strategic goals, we set ourselves the following goals for Season 7

KPIs of PM guild for Season 7

Besides our goals that we refresh every Season, Season 5 saw the introduction of KPIs, which we will measure on an ongoing basis. These KPIs help us to measure whether the guild is doing the right thing objectively. These KPIs are:

  • of active members of the guild Season-on-Season

    • 22 members in S5, 21 in S6 ( we lost 1 active member)
    • Given that we tightened up our active member definition to exclude meeting attendance as an activity criterion, we’re quite happy with this activity
  • of projects analyzed

    • 3 projects analyzed
  • of education pieces created

    • 2 blog posts, 1 Academy course

Budget request for Season 7

In line with member-based guild funding, we ask for a budget of

195,000 BANK = (3 role x 5 hours x 13 weeks) x 1,000 BANK

  • Guid Coordinator
  • Talent Coordinator
  • Education Coordinator

52,000 BANK = (1 role x 4 hours x 13 weeks) x 1000 BANK

  • Accounting

13,000 BANK - Notion Administrator

210,000 BANK = 21# Active Members x 10,000 BANK

  • 21 Active Members

Season 7 PM Guild Request: 470,000 BANK

  • Approve
  • Deny

LFG. PM guild strong :muscle:t6:

I just wished PM guild focused on upskilling guild members, but the guild has been engaging and is starting to grow that community.

I will just add that the guild was actually very responsive and successful at meeting the needs of guild members, lots of discussion always getting member feed back before making decisions, all the active guild members were good role models. The guild does document things very well and is a great place to start learning.


Noted and appreciate that - we have our Season 6 retro and we plan on hearing feedback and then setting our Season 7 strategy accordingly with creating education materials to upskill our guild members.

We are planning to focus 40% of our budget (and potentially more) towards education so we need feedback and input from others and the guild on the WHAT to build and demand for specific materials.
