Revisiting Tags and Topics to Remain Relevant & Encourage More High-Quality Questions
Recently, this post caught my eye bcause at first glance I didn't think it was a PM question. After looking more carefully at it, and at the type of answers and comments it attracted, it seemed like it was not only on topic, but possibly an area we can mine for more engagement with the community.
Basically, I wanted to open the floor to see if we should be proactively adding tags for things like
Root Cause Analysis (RCA),
Causal Maps, or other things that are part of the PM accountability related to uncovering or addressing organizational dysfunction related to project management without sliding into definitively off-topic areas like:
- Anything that really belongs on The Workplace.
- Interpersonal conflict management.
- Organizational change management.
There's probably a lot of other things that we haven't focused on over the years. As others have pointed out, a lot of the older questions were about methodologies that have fallen out of favor, or about Scrum and agile practices that are no longer "new and shiny."
What topics should we actively be promoting on the site, rather than just assuming people will know what's on-topic and what isn't? I'd like to come up with at least 3-5 new tags, and maybe add some stuff to the on-topic portion of our help center.
Thoughts? Ideas? Rotten tomatoes?
