Ubuntu NEXT EGYPT TEAM MEETING: TBA (Event History...) Ubuntu

Structure of Egypt LoCo Team

  • Team has an organized structure to help keeping effort organized and on the right direction. Structure consists of sub-teams inside the LoCo, and each sub-team has a specific job, this way it keeps persons attached to her/his preferred specialization and to help bringing the self-minded persons together, to ease communicating with each other and getting reached by others.

Team Structure


What is Council?

It's a group of persons who represents the community and taking care that things are working. It's main jobs are to handle special situations, like conflicts, and to approve decisions that affects the team if community didn't vote on it.

What Council is Not?

Council does not govern activity, it governs once there's a special situation like a conflict. Governing activity is like telling some FG members to do something and not doing another, but just advising when it urges to advice or when some activity level of some FG, for example, doesn't meet the minimum activity level required to keep the collaboration.

Why Council?

It there to keep the structure work as one team and the whole team's activity meets with our long-term goals.

Focus Groups

What is Focus Group?

It's sub-team of UbuntuEG. A group of same-skilled persons focusing on collaborating together to help community in a specific way.

Why Focus Groups?

  • Volunteer work is the essence of the whole activity and is the main part of what we do. Participating in Focus Groups work is the core of team's activity and presence. The reasons why we've chosen the Focus Groups structure as our frame, are:

It helps doing the following:

  1. Providing the community with such kind of specialization, like designing graphics for events and so...
  2. Ease contacting persons with a specific skill in case that skill needed by the community.
  3. Working in Teams brings better organization and reliability.
  4. It helps providing the community with good output in certain specializations, like support and graphic designing.
  5. It helps determining who represents UbuntuEG when it's needed, like during events.
