DATA & SOFTWARE AT YOUR FINGERTIPS: NSF'S EARTHCUBE AND THE COMPUTER/INFORMATION SCIENCES EarthCube Test Enterprise Governance Workshop Boulder, CO March 5-7, 2014
WORKSHOP GOALS Seek guidance on a communitybased plan to further cyberinfrastructure in the geosciences Assess needs, visions, opportunities, and challenges to the EarthCube builders for the computer and information sciences Identify ways the EarthCube Commons can support these communities
NSF VISION AND GOALS Eva Zanzerkia EarthCube Program Manager NSF
EARTHCUBE TEST ENTERPRISE GOVERNANCE PROJECT An agile approach to design a system that catalyzes the field and works for the community How do we link your tools, standards, and skills to create EarthCube?
Organizational timeline – Year 1 Stakeholders (Assembly) – governance ideas, testing Integrate stakeholder concepts crowdsource Synthesize and recommend to NSF Demo phase Governance charter Governance timeline – Year 2 Establish Organizational Demo Facilitate convergence on system design, data standards Evaluate results: basis for long term organization NSF solicitation?
WHAT IS EARTHCUBE “GOVERNANCE?” Not imposition of unwanted command and control Resistance is futile!
Providing a ‘backbone’ to help build community Governance is finding solutions to specific problems, fostering trust, reconciling interests, and coordinating communities.
OPPORTUNITIES IN SHAPING EARTHCUBE
EarthCube governance is a blank canvas We are looking to you to paint the future

ASSEMBLY ADVISORY COUNCIL SUMMIT APRIL 16-18, 2014 LODGE ON THE DESERT, TUCSON, AZ
EARTHCUBE COMMONS Resolving the social, cultural, and organizational challenges to building infrastructure
EVALUATORS ROLES Workshop facilitation Meeting observation and periodic interventions (some built into the agenda and some in “real time” to respond to emergent dynamics) to ask questions that will generate reflection and learning on governance Targeted facilitation support for the chartering of the new forums after the workshop
FORMATIVE EVALUATION Testing and analyzing process and solutions Stakeholder alignment
DEVELOPMENTAL EVALUATION “learn as you go” Real-time feedback Ongoing interaction between project staff, evaluators, and participants (‘strategic learning’)
DEVELOPMENTAL EVALUATION Three pillars: 1) Learning - “The systematic use of data for continuous improvement and the collective interpretation of new information” 2) Being Strategic - “Applying the collective interpretation of information to strategy” 3) Applied Research - “Utilizing theory and research to ground both strategy and learning in a broader context”
