If you have ever experienced a statutes revision in your sports club, imagine this: to revise statutes of a world wide organisation with 105 member federations, and about as many cultural, economic and political contexts. This is SportAccord, the umbrella organisation of the International Sports Federations. The statutes revision takes place right now.
A first tentative based on e-mail and fax was abandonded shortly after it started, and just on time before it turned into nightmare. The organisation then asked Tabrasco to build a web based process, with direct dialogue among the participants and a pre-defined timeline. Phase 1 of the input gathering has now been closed. Time for Marie-France Wilson, the person in charge of the process at SportAccord, to share her experience.
The application is based on the Rules Tracker software, created by Tabrasco for smart and smooth editing of bylaws, regulations and other reference documents.
