The governance community has had a firm grasp on the ongoing governance-related decisions and demonstrated the ability to manage the peg and the risks associated with onboarding collaterals. However, when it comes to business decisions, a new framework needs to be in place to overcome the challenge of making direction-setting decisions.
The good news is that Project Compass has started creating a consensus-setting framework.
I would like us to start listing what we think as priorities and build a consensus on critical business topics. Once Project Compass releases a framework, we can take on the priorities one by one. Let me begin by listing priorities I believe we need to tackle first:
- Mission and vision - This topic has been discussed repeatedly. Once we have the framework in place, I believe this will be our number one priority.
- MakerDAO’s short-term and long-term objectives - Again, once we have a consensus framework in place, we can build consensus and finalize so that each unit can be aligned and create its deliverables accordingly.
- Ensuring the handover from the foundation takes place smoothly
a. Have we missed anything regarding functions that the foundation currently covers?
b. How can we create a better “customer journey” for all participants in the DAO? They are people who recently read about us in the media and want to find out more. They are first-time vault owners, Dai users, MKR holders, voters, liquidation participants, and potential partners. For that reason, I see the topic/poll posted by @iammeeoh about moving to Discord as a priority.
We need to reach a consensus on our priorities and recognize the urgent issues at hand as a DAO. Without an objective set first for MakerDAO, the core units and the community risk running in different directions and weakening our efforts.
What do you think is our priority from the business perspective? How can we focus on priorities instead of being distracted by topics that seem interesting to engage but have low priorities?
