September 10, 2016 Community of Excellence - LEAPing beyond Olmsted County staff operations

Good to learn that Olmsted County embraces LEAP  ... " which is being used right now at Mayo Clinic and IBM and many other business in this community". 

As the region's various initiatives roll out, is there a willingness and a recognition that the LEAP commitment and mindset should be extended from Olmsted County admin to other public, private and social agencies whose collective effort should be aligned to ensure continuous improvement to reduce frictions and improve productivity?

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
