Contribution Challenges Overview
Contribution Challenges were developed to drive immediate impact against our topline organizational goals this year. They were also developed to engage, empower and inspire the community to make an impact.
The first set of six challenges were socialized at ReMo Camp in September. These first challenges were selected because they will make an impact this year and because there is a strong need for community involvement in these challenges to make them successful.
This is just the beginning as we will be identifying challenges to work on as we move forward. If you have an idea for a challenge please go ahead and submit your challenge. Challenges will be identified on an ongoing basis. As challenges get approved teams to support these challenges will be assigned.
What is a Contribution Challenge?
A contribution challenge is just that a “challenge” that we are facing that would benefit greatly from the involvement of our community. Contribution Challenges start with a brief that outlines the mission/business need and the impact it will have against our topline strategic goals. The contribution challenge is driven by a business owner and a community liaison who are in charge of drafting the brief. Once the brief is drafted the drivers of the challenge will share the information with the community asking for input. This information will typically be shared either asynchronously or through a vidyo call/meeting. There will be some brainstorming or a discussion around the brief. A community lead will be identified and a core team will be formed and held accountable ensuring the brief is delivering against the impact it set out to achieve.
How do I Submit a Challenge?
Any one can submit a challenge (volunteer community members or paid staff). If you have a project that you feel would benefit greatly from the involvement of the community please fill out the brief template and submit your challenge.
How Are Challenges Selected?
The Community Tiger Team will review and evaluate challenges as they are submitted. Challenges will be evaluated based on the set of criteria outlined here:
- Executive sponsor/champion
- Impact: will it deliver impact against our topline initiatives?
- Time to market: can it get into market quickly?
- Timeliness: is this challenge time sensitive; does it need to be executed in a certain amount of time?
If your challenge is selected you will receive an email notification outlining next steps to kick off your challenge.
