  • Increase the size and quality of the pie (grow the community, make it healthier)
  • Increase the size of the pie slice – the portion of community users who become enterprise users
  • Partners, end-users, other Alfresco divisions
  • Keeping the innovation engine humming
  • Engage community members, regardless of skill set or relationship to Alfresco, to participate more deeply. The old bacon versus eggs metaphor.
  • Expose the greatness already existing in the community, both community projects and individuals
  • Our plan for the community must find a way to speak to each of these motivations
