Note: The following invitation was sent to WG members by Lars Hoffman on 2 July 2015.
Long story short: please take a moment to complete the self-assessment survey for the Translation and Transliteration PDP Working Group!
Link: http://ttoci.questionpro.com (Active through 17 July 2015)
Short story long: see below.
In 2014, the GNSO Council adopted a process and questionnaire for Working Groups to conduct Self-Assessments when their work has been substantially finished. The goal is to provide Chartering Organizations, such as the GNSO Council, important information about how well its Working Groups are functioning through an examination of their Inputs -> Processes -> Outputs ultimately leading to continuing improvements.
Our Working Group has been identified to participate in this process the details of which are provided below:
An external ICANN consultant, Ken Bour (firstname.lastname@example.org), will monitor the completion process, provide brief status updates to the co-Chairs and Lars, and be available to provide technical assistance if needed by any of our team members. He will also be the only person who has access to your individual responses according to the following clause which you will see on the questionnaire welcome page:
Confidentiality: We will be asking you for identifying information to ensure that each response is valid. Your individual responses will not be accessible by anyone other than the ICANN Staff Administrator and they will not be disclosed or published in a way that could be matched to your identity.
Once the survey period has closed, Ken will produce a report summarizing the findings which will be shared with our team, the GNSO Council, the Stakeholder Groups and Constituencies, and other interested parties.
I appreciate your willingness to provide feedback about the Translation & Transliteration of Content Information PDP Working Group and your participation in it.
Lars (on behalf of the co-Chairs)
