LC Approved on October 8, 2014. Presented to the Trustees on October 9th, 2014.

Summary:

At a recent Board of Trustees (BoT) meeting, the Leadership Council (LC) recently raised discussion around WG and DG reporting structure in an effort to further engage the LC in the organizational planning and activities.  The BoT recommended that the LC should engage all WG & DG leaders to determine if the structure of the organization may benefit from a review and refinement. The BoT also recognized that any possible merging of WGs & DGs will require a review of IPR and process to manage potential risks.  Areas of impact to IPR are under the authority of the BoT.  Thus the request for LC recommendation focuses toward a visualization of Kantara Initiative working structure rather than mechanics and process of merging WGs & DGs intellectual property.

Goal:

The goal of the LC WG/DG structure review is to produce a recommendation of reorganization to the BoT for consideration.

The LC recommendation may include approaches such as:

  • Convergence and merging of one or more WGs & DGs
  • Collection of specific WGs & DGs as "affiliated" under specific themes
  • A combination of both convergence and affiliation approaches
  • Another approach that is not listed above.

Themes:

The LC suggested the following two themes:

  • Connected Life: focusing on access management, identities of things, consent and notice, and identity relationship management.
  • Trust Services: focusing on scenarios that benefit from verification of services for both technology and policy deployment further enabling a trusted layer of interactions.

Key Consideration:

The LC made a specific note to advise that it suggests special consideration to IPR implications with regard to varying IPR under a particular theme.  This could be related to any future desire to merge groups.  A recommendation was made that it may be interesting to query new groups regarding the "firmness" of their initial IPR policy selection.

Table Header Key:

The table below captures current "metadata" associated with Kantara Initiative WGs & DGs.

  • ACTIVE is noted by if the group is having conference calls, using their email list, producing output
  • IPR is from the group charter
  • PROGRAM notes if the group is connected to the Assurance or Interop programs developments
  • INNOVATION notes if the group is working in a leading edge space where this work is not connected to a program
  • SCOPE rough estimate of where the group focuses most between technology and policy (sometimes both)
  • MEMBER OFFICER tied to developing discussions within the Board of Trustees seeking to understand if there is one Member officer in each group leadership.
