Structure and responsibilities#

This page describes the structure and roles of our Operations Team.

Responsibilities#

2i2c’s Operations team is responsible for defining and overseeing our systems for work coordination, planning, and accountability.

Below are major areas of responsibility.

Define systems and processes for coordination#

  • Define our meeting and coordination systems for planning our work.

  • Define systems for sharing information between team members.

Refine work items to be actionable and clear#

  • Translate strategic priorities and deliverables into actionable work items.

  • Ensure that our work items have a clear scope and path forward for completion.

  • Communicate with teams (e.g. Product and Engineering or Community and Partnerships) to align team members on a plan.

Oversee work for projects and teams#

  • Assign work items to team members on a given project according to team priorities.

  • Hold team members accountable for completing work on-time, or for adjusting scope as needed.

Communicate progress and status to internal stakeholders#

  • Make our work transparent, discoverable, and understanding to internal stakeholders, especially those that communicate with external stakeholders.

  • Share information about the status and progress of major work items.

  • Surface changes in scope or identified risk in accomplishing our goals.

Team structure#

Our operations team largely consists of Project Managers that oversee the coordination and execution of work on a given project. They tend to oversee backlogs that a number of team members work on, and work with key stakeholders to ensure that our teams execute their work according to our priorities and objectives.

Team roles#
