I'm sorry to be tardy with my response. It's been a wild few weeks.

Your plan looks good to me . . . My advice?

Just do it.

Sounds like the "sponsor" is on-board.

The only tweak I can think of is something I did with an MBA group . . .
Use the first session to Open Space, Create the bulletin board as if it
were a multi-day event - Then open the Market PLace.

This might reveal many issues that are presently known up front . . . and
the Marketplace would help the group prioritize.

That could set up the scenario of the group "scheduling Sessions" for the
future meetings.

Then . . . each session begins with a brief reminder of the 5 Principles
and Law, then Morning Announcements with an invitation to add any new
topics . . . then straight to work

I'd love to hear how it goes.
