     11== Summary written up afterwards ==
     12
     13There are two pieces to look at for a solution: immediate next steps to get us back on track, and process changes to do it better in the future.
     14
     15Immediate next steps:
     16  * We should hold "wishlist retreats" where we just brainstorm things we ought to do, separate from what the current funding is.
     17
     18Process changes:
     19  * We need to roadmap by wishlist item, *then* match items to existing funding.
     20  * We need to do periodic task check-ins, to decide if a given deliverable is still the best thing for us to be doing.
     21    * What we mean by periodic can vary by team. Monthly or something?
     22    * Remember that our funders want us to be doing the right things, so they will generally be pleased for us to swap bad items for good ones.
     23    * This is course requires good funder relationships, and also concise accurate communications about constraints.
     24  * "Think goals, not deliverables".
     25    That is, we should roadmap by category ("performance", "security", "maintainability", etc) rather than by funder.
