Intro

Welcome to the Second Cradle to Career Newsletter 
Keeping you informed of the progress and status of our work.

First a brief recap. Since the first newsletter, we have progressed greatly on this initiative. The Cradle to Career Planning Team (C2CPT) was formed and has met several times. Last week, the team continued in the planning process, holding our third session. Participation by this team has been excellent with extensive time commitments, participation, teamwork, and enthusiasm for the work. We are currently working to refine proposals on our recommended purpose, outcomes, goals, geographic scope and budgetary needs.
Organizations involved in planning have committed additional resources to bring StriveTogether back on August 31 to help us complete our recommendations for a shared backbone structure to sustain this work across the community over time.
Organizations involved in planning have committed additional resources to bring StriveTogether back on August 31 to help us complete our recommendations for a shared backbone structure to sustain this work across the community over time. We thank these groups for their financial support of this critical planning phase:
  • City of Rochester
  • Mayo Clinic
  • Olmsted County
  • Rochester Area Foundation
  • Rotary Clubs of Rochester
  • United Way of Olmsted County
Our work with the StriveTogether experts will include specific focus around our Data Jedi team, Investor Circle, Leadership table and operational backbone.

The efforts of this team are all building towards a set of recommendations that will be presented at a community forum when the work is ready for broader discussion.  After community agreement, we will launch the backbone structure and leadership council. We appreciate the patience of the community and all of our supporting partners as this first phase of planning work takes place. 

If you have comments, input and/or feedback, please contact us at cradle2career2017@gmail.com .

Please feel free to forward this newsletter to others, including your boards, colleagues, friends and family.

Attached is more detailed status of our work and timelines.

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

  3. Plan - idea is solid, stakeholders are identified, and there is strong commitment to go forward from all parties.
  4. Concept Phase - idea scoped out with enough details to give an early sizing and/or to build a proof of concept
    demonstration
  5. Pre-concept Phase - an early idea or a requirement.
