The six planned outcomes of this Plenary meeting are critical for moving the work forward:
- Harmonize and socialize understanding of a model for the IEF and components;
- Build high-level Plenary work plans based on Committee input;
- Build Committee-specific work plans;
- Ensure all work plans address the NSTIC strategy and the identity ecosystem key attributes identified at the 2nd Plenary;
- Develop a plan to address any work plan gaps, inconsistencies, or redundancies; and
- Approve any Committee charters that are ready.
Day 1 - Tuesday, February 5
- Led by Bob Blakley (Citigroup), Plenary Chair, Brett McDowell (PayPal), Management Council Chair, and Jeremy Grant (NSTIC NPO), Management Council Vice Chair.
- Mr. Blakley will present a synthesis and skeleton framework based on work previously done in committee and at Plenary 2 held in Washington, DC last year.
- Using this facilitation framework informed by the strategic goals for the IDESG in 2013-2014 from Brett McDowell, the participants will be asked to engage in table discussions identifying and prioritizing IE framework components.
- In-person participants will work at their tables while remote participants will be able to select from any of the virtual table discussions set up with access information posted online. Working together as a group each table or virtual table will select priorities for some example components and identify what else needs to be part of the IEF using an online form. These will be compiled, reported to the full group, and form the basis for a discussion aimed at outcome #1 to harmonize and socialize an understanding of the model for the IEF and components.
Day 2 - Wednesday, February 6
- The second day of the plenary will begin with a high level overview of committee charters and work plans with a charge to the committees from Bob Blakley and Brett McDowell.
- In response to feedback from the last Plenary meeting, no more than six of the 12 committees will meet at one time. Each committee has been asked to conduct work planning and be prepared to report back to the full Plenary using a template for discussion. The template covers some key questions:
- As you begin work planning think strategically about what the first IDESG accomplishments should be. What should the first and second press releases from IDESG and what should they say about our accomplishments?
- Report on your Committee Work Plans including Deliverables solely for this Committee.
- Provide a Deliverables List and identify what Committees have shared responsibility with your committee and what committees have a contributory role with your committee.
- The Wednesday lunch break offers a chance to participate in informal discussions on topics identified by participants in "Birds of a Feather" discussion groups. To suggest topics for these groups in advance, please go tohttps://adobeformscentral.com/?f=CP1geQJdhVTLgBtlzfWZBA and propose your ideas. Topics will be solicited onsite as well.
- Only 14 discussion groups will be available because of space limitations.
- Once list of topics and remote access information is final, it will be posted online.
- After each committee breakout session (one in the morning and one in the afternoon), the Plenary will come together as a whole to hear the report outs from the Committee chairs about their discussions, answers to their template questions, and specific Committee Work Plans.
- In addition to the committee report outs, the Plenary will work to identify gaps in the committee work plans, redundancies, and key attributes not yet addressed.
Day 3 - Thursday, February 7
- The third and final day of the Plenary will require attention to some key work items:
- The Privacy Committee will present to the full plenary the Privacy Evaluation Methodology.
- The Standards Committee will present information on their developing work on Use Case Development.
- Both presentations will be to the full Plenary and include some interaction and group discussion.
- Bob Blakley will lead the IDESG in identifying:
- Where committee and Plenary work plans can proceed;
- Where work plan activities will require further resolution or modification;
- Potential plans to address redundancies and gaps in work plans; and
- Any needed resources.
- The final session will address open business including the consensus approval of committee charters and proposed ombudsman complaint procedures.
