Initially, it would be wise to set up a Working Group (WG) using IZITEQ resources and premises. Later, if needed, the WG could be transformed into some other form, like a Technical Committee (TC) or a nonprofit organization. The WG should have a secretary handling communications with all interested parties.
The main tasks of the WG are
- Performing stakeholder analysis and inviting them to participate
- Drafting IZI standards, specifications, and protocols with input from stakeholders
- Keeping stakeholders and interested parties informed on the development and related events
- Designing internal work procedures and work flow
- Meetings (when needed) for approval of standards and specifications
Any stakeholder (organization) may participate at WG activities as a member or observer.
- An observer is an entity that receives all specifications and other available related information. Observers may send proposals, review comments, and supply feedback to the WG secretary. This input is to be handled according to certain procedures (procedures will be developed by the WG).
- A member is an entity who represents a certain stakeholder group or just one company. WG members pay an annual fee and contribute some other resources (human, expertise or funding). Members (or groups of stakeholders they represent) commit and use specifications as they are developed.
Proper WG articles of association are to be developed in the future by the WG itself.
We invite all parties who have any commercial interests within the Mobile Traveler Guides market to participate in this work. Once again, it is up to you how you will do that, whether you decide on investing resources into actual development or merely observing.
