==Implementation vs. Policy Development==
While a longstanding issue within the ICANN community, the difference and use of implementation procedures and policy development began to come to a noticeable head throughout 2012 and into 2013. Strictly speaking, anything that is "ICANN Policy" needs to go through its various [[SO|supporting organizations]] and be approved, while implementation refers to matters adopted by the [[ICANN Board]] regardless of any consultation to the rest of the community. ICANN is supposed to be driven by bottom-up, consensus policy development, and this often results in the organization making slow progress. Implementation procedures are necessary to accommodate the practical issues related to organizational effectiveness.<ref name="Race">[http://www.bna.com/race-toward-new-b17179871911/ Race Toward New, BNA.com]Published 17 Jan 2013, Retrieved 18 Jan</ref>
