Just a quick note on that training. I didn't follow the training
myself (yet) so what I will say is only what I have heard.

Zingerman is a company quoted in nearly every book that consider
alternative ways of managing an organization.
I think sharing this experience will be be really valuable for the TC
and board members, and for OpenStack as a whole (and the organizations
in which they are).
I hope that others will have the opportunity to join and share this experience.

I agree with Thierry that a half day to discuss how to turn the
training into action could be important (if not mandatory ;) ).

Let us know how it was :)
