It seems that more countries are getting SMs (Brazil, Italy, possibly France). Should the US specific SM list be moved to a separate page in order to make this a general catch-all page for any country that has SMs? I am thinking it might be better to have a general overview of what the SM role encompasses for all countries and then have links at the bottom for things specific to each country, such as who to contact (RC/Champ), who the current SMs are, etc.

The chart could visually represent the prerequisites for each community role, assuming that some roles are prerequisites for others. But we also need to set forth the duties and perquisites for each role. We also need to set forth the same for editing ranks. And set forth any relationship that exists between editing rank and the community roles.

I suppose we also need to decide if we give any lip serves to the expert roles at this point. I tend to consider them them dead. But we don't really have any localization issues in the US and the localization role appears to me to be only one that was included in the expert framework that has survived.

We must document the various ranks, their prerequisites, their perquisites and their duties somewhere better than we do now. I simply do not understand the system and it seems that I am supposed to be managing the system through the role of SM in my region.

What is the role of CM now and are there any duties that go along with it?

The draft wiki page https://wiki.waze.com/wiki/State_Manager presently says an SM can be nominated by a Champ. The Regional Coordinator (RC) -- with whom the SM will have to work -- must be solely responsible for the final decision, taking into consideration the input of other RCs, CMs, and Champs.

To that end, I'm thinking along the lines of a more business-like "hiring" process [in the Southeast] and selecting from among interested (those that take the time to apply) and qualified applicants.

Once hired, the RC that hired them is responsible for them. They will be the group the RC primarily mentors. The RC has a more vested interest in the success of those they hire, rather than someone foisted upon them, because each SM's performance then reflects upon the RC. If it turns out the RC hired the wrong person, then it's on the RC to figure out how to handle it. (I'm uncertain exactly what that means, just yet.)

With this new SM position, now seems the time to implement a more structured approach. In this situation, where the SMs are responsible for working with the RC, hiring by the RC with community input is a better approach. It may be a small matter of semantics.

In my professional life, I've had success hiring the right people, and usually involve colleagues, immediate senior management and subordinates to rank-order resumes' as a means to mitigate any personal biases, though in the end the decision was mine.
