Plone is not owned or directed by a commercial company, it is truly community-driven. This bottom-up approach makes planning for the future a bit more difficult. It's more of an iterative process.
- In 2008 the Plone Foundation organized a Strategic Planning Summit and invited key community members to spend 3 days working on a plan for the strategic future of Plone.
- In 2012 the Foundation Board designated a Roadmap Team to synthesize community views and create a Plone roadmap with near, medium and long term items.
- In 2014 a planning discussion was held at the 2014 Bristol Plone Conference and the results constitute the latest community vision of the future of Plone.
- In 2015 another Strategic Sumit was held in Sorrento, Italy.
