[OSList] Feedback Requested - Open Space Proposal

Sounds like wonderful fun. But I do have one question. What is an Analytics Team? What do they do? If I knew the answer to those questions THE question would be easy. "What are the issues and opportunities for (building, fixing, doing) Analytics? The technology could get a little wild and all would be improved with some f-t-f gatherings. I'm involved in a little experiment also. I've agreed to do a 10 week course which I propose to do all in Open Space with the exception of the first session which will set the stage for what follows. I even have a "handout" to keep people company if they need some reminders of what to do. Love to hear your thoughts, and of course, please feel free to use any part that might be useful.

Subject: [OSList] Feedback Requested - Open Space Proposal

Hi everyone,

I attended the Peace and High Performance workshop in January. Another attendee, Regina Kang, inspired me to try Open Space at work in a similar fashion as she facilitates it in South Korea. 
The group that would participate is a single analytics team. It is comprised of about 30-35 people and is split across three sites. There are both managers and analysts, and I am a member on the team. I have pitched this to my manager, who is the highest ranking team member, and she is on board. Because we are at different sites, I propose holding the Open Space virtually.   
Also, we would hold an Open Space prior to the monthly meetings in order to introduce everyone to Open Space. We're still working out the details on this.
I'd love feedback on my proposal below. One question I have is regarding the theme. I propose that the theme be simply "How can we...?" The team member can fill in the ellipsis when convening sessions. What do you think?
Let me know if you have questions.
All the best,Jake
