Hi Klaus-Jürgen, hi Michel, all!

First, thanks Klaus-Jürgen for your reply ... yesterday, we again had a
full-day workshop and so I didn't feel like posting too weird thoughts
to the list ;-)

Now, I see two "N.N." who need to be filled in the mid-term ... so what
do you think? How to go on? Anybody there who might accept to guide the
direction of this team?

What actions/responsabilities are expected from the leader ?
What is expected to apply ?

I think it is a job like a facility manager/consierge or - if this 
sounds a little bit better - a mentor.
The lead should have a look on the different work that come up on one of 
the two parts of the design team (vi (visual identity) and ux (user 
experience)), sometimes coordinate it a bit, give some advices.

I think that frames it very well. Although just anybody can pick up
things and organize what is important - there is no real need to be
called a leader. In fact, this project isn't that much about leadership,
it is about meritocracy. Thus, if somebody has a proven track record of
doing cool stuff (tm), then he automatically leads somehow.

So why did we have that "leader" voting before? Because we are still a
young project with - especially in our team - topics where "opinion of
an individual" looks as valid as "fact based on research". Plus, it
really helps to know what goes on in other teams, otherwise the
"guidance" might lead into the wrong direction.


Il would allow them to share the pressure, the decisions, the knowledge,
and also one can take some rest without disturbing the project.

Our design leads (Bernhard and Christoph) were not like chairmans. They 
don't make the decisions, they "only" start the votings and discussions 
if no one else do this. Of course they have had a look at our branding 
and other advices. They are one of the go-to persons if someone out of 
the design team has a question. Sometimes they turn the team's attention 
to a work, which we get out of sight, by asking one/two per PM or the 
whole team by ml.

By the way, if anybody wants to get some feedback on any issue ... feel
free to ask. There are some very knowledgeable people on this list.
