The Program Deliverables

Program findings are restricted to members, although top line results may be communicated openly.  We will conduct a number of projects as outlined above and create a deliverable or deliverables for each which could include a report, deck, data set, website, tools, MOOC, or other device for sharing results.  We will also hold a final summit, with attendance restricted to program members and faculty, where program results will be shared and discussed.

1.     Reports and Tools that share program conclusions and enable member organizations to interact with this content

2.     Monthly webinars

3.     A custom executive briefing from Don Tapscott and/or Alex Tapscott at the member’s location, at a mutually agreed upon time and date

4.     At least one all member summit

5.     A private website for presentation of deliverables and communication among members
