We just completed our mid-year review process internally, a milestone that focuses more on what you want to accomplish in the future rather than critique of past performance. I set a near-term goal to more clearly communicate our Education vision to technically-minded customers.
I've been brainstorming and have decided to start with the existing 3-pillar foundation. I have a lot of respect for the people that originally founded this concept and I think it provides a solid starting point.
Strategic Pillars for 21st Century Learning
- Teaching and Learning
- Effective & Efficient Administration - Business of Schools
- Student Lifestyle
This can be more simply communicated as "Academic, Business, and Lifestyle". Our infrastructure tools and solutions sometimes fit cleanly in to one category but often span two or more. This is a solid foundation to prove the relevancy of our solutions, something I really believe in and would like to share.
