I agree about keeping things moving.

The charter doesn't have to be cast in concrete during this period, I don't=
 think.  it just has to be workable enough to move on to the next steps.  I=
 think of it like, we're assembling something complicated, and right now=
 we're putting everything together "finger tight" just to get all the pieces=
 in place.  When it all seems to hold together, we can tweak the parts and=
 tighten the bolts.

And more about moving forward...
I'm hoping by the weekend to put out a list of projects and processes that I=
 can imagine taking place between SqF and SqC in the next 6 months to a=
 year.  This may seem out of sequence in the chaordic plan, but my hope is=
 to sort of load our cache with some of the situations we (at least I) will=
 want to deal with, so that the orderly plan goes forward with these in mind=
