Phase 1 Timeline

 

The inspiration for the Power of 10 came while Jeff Scott was attending Dreamforce in late 2007. Jeff had the chance to meet Jill Sieder, the executive director of the East Atlanta Kids Club on a boat trip across the San Francisco Bay to Tiburon. As Jill shared her story, it set in motion a fundamental shift for him both personally and professionally - it was time to begin the process of creating a mission-driven, for-profit culture that could make a significant difference in our community.

2007- 2008 Program Launch and development

 

This was our breakthrough year!  We realized the importance of incorporating our giving back goals into the corporate culture and strategic planning process each year. In early November each year we establish our giving back goals and then refine our for-profit strategic plan in support of each goal.

2009 permantley shaped our direction and set us up for an amazing 2010!

2009

 

2010 was a great learning experience :) for the Giving Back Program. We achieved our overall community impact goal but discovered that each of the individual goals were quite unique. Some goals were not going to allow a small team of individuals to scale and had to be adjusted or totally removed in 2011. 
 

It is important to fail, reflect on lessons learned and be prepared for what lies ahead!
