Develop a checklist on how to write a great Open Opportunities task

Tapas plate with the word Closed across.Tapas: The Open Opportunities team is looking for someone to develop a checklist or guide to help task creators write good tasks to post on the Open Opportunities platform.

One of the things we’ve learned is that creating good tasks is difficult for many people. “Chunking” work into simple and manageable tasks with concrete deliverables is a culture shift requiring people to change the way they look at work.

During the pilot we collected lessons and tips as to what makes a good task. Now, we need someone to come in and take that information and turn it into an easy to use guide, checklist or a combination of the two that will help provide direction to task creators.

Duration: 4-8  hours

Deadline: May 1
