DMC Dashboard - April 2016 Status

PlanScape Impact(s): Best Practice ; Economic Development ; Metrics ; TBD
Last modified: April 24, 2016 Public Report From DMC Dashboard

 

I was surprised that the DMC indicators chosen were not the same as Section 2.4 of DMC Plan.

Question: Shouldn’t outcomes be things like jobs created and not how money is spent?

For example, getting a private 5.0B investment, while important, is but a means to produce the end result (goal), eg: job growth. So, from a community impact standpoint, indicators for economic growth is what I would measure.

But I will accept that it is a starting point. Paraphrasing Tina Smith's comments about dashboard: one can get bogged down and slow momentum--especially in a "group think" setting if one insists on perfection.

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
  2. Develop - program or application is being developed
  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.
