Hi Andrew, thank you for your message. I suggest we set up a phone call where we further talk about your idea and I could offer you a detailed view of the Portuguese current CI reality. What do you think?
Hi Andrew, I am very sorry to only now come back to your invitation. I have missed your request for too long. I look forward to have the chance to work together for the development of CI. Wish you all the best, Miguel
Thank you for the welcome back, Andrew. Just re-iterate the points I made in 1997:
1: We've been practising CI since 1982 - long before SCIP was thought of.
2: We have serious reservations about US SCIP: the way it operates, its americo-centric policies, and some of its more questionable members and their activities. That's why we left SCIP somewhere around 2000.
3: We're quite interesting in joining and contributing to a UK- or Europe-based CI group. The way CI works varies widely from country to country across Europe; what's accepted in one country is frowned on in another, and a crime in a third. There's interesting work to be done on this.
I like structured approaches like strategy maps because they drive useful discussion (and sometimes even decisions!), and could certainly see how we could apply that tool to the IntellCollab. With that said, I suspect we might have more luck applying such an approach to an individual project under the IntellCollab at this point, as there is a lot of interest in keeping the IntellCollab "loose" as it gets going, and strategy maps tend to be more oriented towards defining specific objectives, goals and initiatives. What do you think?
