Ideas for possible follow-up

One approach is to develop information targeted to specific areas in the challenge, then send those to people who've selected those areas as helpful reminders and follow-up.. Doing that might include:

  • Analyzing the data to identify the areas to focus on first
  • Researching suggestions for getting savings in those areas
  • Identifying and soliciting ideas from 10% Challenge participants and Green Needham members on how they achieved savings
  • Deciding how best and how often to communicate with people

Another area is tracking overall participation and success, then publicizing it. We need to create a place on the web page for this. A related area is tracking group participation and success.
