Anyhow, some of the first few bullets (and the last) of the first part (responsibilities) of said draft don't seem that bad to me and I could definitely see those as a function description that is clear and simple. The tasks part is indeed too detailed for me. I have no opinion about the term (which is also related to the selection method). 'chair does what chair should do' is also very much not KISS, since it's both unclear and meaningless. It also begs the question, 'according to whom?'. Jelte
