    • The Query Subject
    • Three Query Tracks
      • Track A (Quick Turnaround of 6/7 working days)
      • Track B (Normal Turnaround of 14/16 working days)
      • Track C (Extended Turnaround of 20/22 working days)
    • For Track A : [se-decn] Query: URGENT - Reply by 11 November 2006 . [subject], from [organization, location] [type]
    • For others:
      • [se-decn] Query: Exposure Visits for Panchayat Members and Representatives,from Future Generations Arunachal, Itanagar (Referrals). Reply by 11 November
    • Use technically correct, commonly understood terms (e.g. PRIs for Panchayati Raj Institutions)
    • Ask Query Poster about the Turnaround Time
    • More than one query poster possible
  • 4.
    • Formulating A Query – The Process
    • Help frame the Query - It should conceal vital information but should reveal some that evokes interest
    • One line queries – [Recently I cold not join the discussion due to my overloaded works relating e-Gov in PRIs in this State. However in near future this subject may be discussed.]
    • Long Queries – One page long with eleven questions – Design of Panchayat Buildlngs – converted to half page query with 4 clear questions-elicited 29 responses.
    • Avoid layered queries – simple, straight and amenable to responses
    • Determine subject, query type,
    • Circulate within the KM Team for comments, especially about cross posting
  • 5.
    • Cross Posting a Query
    • To get contrasting and complementary perspectives
    • Touchstone - Query could have been posted by either community
    • Use judiciously so as not to overburden members with too many emails
    • When to cross post and when not to cross post
    • Sharing of work between ‘Primary’ and ‘Secondary’ Community
  • 6.
    • Timing of a Query
    • ‘ Easy’ vs ‘Difficult’ Queries – easy ones to charge up the members, amenable to quick responses
    • Synchronize with an event/occasion or season - (e.g. related to roof water harvesting in summer, onset of monsoon; prior to a workshop on a similar issue)
    • Order – Mixing of queries to let maximum members participate
    • Time of posting – evening/before the weekend. Try to keep a separate window for posting a query, avoid crowding.
    • Urgency factor
  • 7.
    • Which Queries to take up
    • Appeal to a wider membership, amenable to responses
    • Mix queries with focus on specific organizations (e.g. government, NGOs especially at grassroots , donor agencies, researchers and academics)
    • Mix ‘easy’ and ’difficult’ queries – e.g. ‘Administrative Reforms in Local Bodies’ with ‘Resource Mobilization by Local Bodies’
    • ‘ Field’ and ‘Academic’ types
    • Thematic variation
  • 8. THANK YOU!
