Dashboard: Community Anchor Projects Metrics

Various anchor initiatives in Rochester have similar goals and that the organizations/teams driving these initiatives have great intention to collaborate. And the difficulty of teaming and collaboration among large scale projects is well-known though seldom receives serious discussions. hat's why alignment of goals, indicators, strategies and measurements is highly valued in best-practices such as Lean 6 Sigma. However, a rigid top-down approach which says everything has to be lined up before actions take place is not practical in the matrix world we live in. What we champion is "beaming up" transparency, accountability, responsiveness and process-centric disciplines by leveraging technology to allow side-by-side visibility of various projects. This portal demonstrates how it could be done.

Diversity/Inclusion Beam

openBEAM.net in collaboration with Journey to Growth's Diversity/Inclusion Committee is "beaming" up this portal to showcase projects and organizations that aim to improve the well-being conditions of minority groups. Statistics such as those curated by Minnesota Compass tell us there are significant education and earning gaps in non-white populations across Minnesota. With projected workforce shortage and demographics trend, these gaps cannot persist if our region is to realize the Destination Medical Center (DMC) objectives and other overarching wellness aspirations.

Site Information
Beam
  • For the commercial sector, we tend to register startup activities (new companies and new commercial projects) that bring diversification and high-impact opportunities to the area.
  • For the non-profit sector, we wish to shine light on all the organizations and services that otherwise labor under relative obscurity.
  • Our hope is that dmcbeam.org will encourage cross-sector collaborations and creative solutions.

While there are a number of registries in the community, dmcbeam.org's  distinct value is to pilot a database with a data structure and categorizations that answer the questions such as: What organizations or projects/programs in our community that have purported relevance with some of the over-arching focuses put forward by initiatives such as DMC, J2G and Health Improvements?

This database could be used as one of the ways to explore the capacities of the community. If you are someone on an exploratory journey to learn about the greater Rochester community. dmcbeam.org could be an interesting first step.

Definitions
The following defines the various project phases:
  1. Available - a product, program or service is in production

  4. Concept Phase - idea scoped out with enough details to give an early sizing and/or to build a proof of concept
