OpenTEAM Working Groups

OpenTEAM Working Groups

Field Methods Group

The field methods group bridges science with the available tools to create a versioned and tiered approach to support the needs of farmers/ranchers, researchers, and markets. 

Hub & Network Group

The Hub and Network Working Group brings together various organizations that have an ability to groundtruth the work of the agricultural technology ecosystem that the OpenTEAM community is creating. This group provides input on the hub experience and helps improve the hub and network model. This group supports the process of onboarding new Hubs and Networks. 

Human Centered Design Group

Human Centered Design (HCD) is a process by which we better understand the challenges, goals, needs, and desired experiences of groups of people that may interface with a service, software, or system that we are designing. The Human Centered Design Working Group seeks to approach the development of the OpenTEAM technology ecosystem from the perspective of users, making sure products are usable and useful from the perspective of the user/human.

Tech Group

The Technology Working Group brings together product managers, developers, and others highly engaged in the technology through OpenTEAM. The goal of this working group is to keep one another informed on technology and product updates, identify shared technical needs between organizations or products, prioritize collective actions into work packages and implement the underlying structural work it takes to make the tools within the OpenTEAM community truly interoperable.
