Issues/Hot Topics

Project Documents


  • Heather (snippet of an e-mail): may I also suggest that you consider that the overviews and informaiton provided be written for people who are not necessarilly closely involved - make sure that descriptions are clear and that they include some consideration of the motivators to read further. Think not from our perspective of telling people, but rather of encouraging people to read further
  • Per product: elevator pitch; max 2 sentences per item:
    1. What does it do? This sentence should be a "Twitter-friendly headline." You should be able to describe your product or service in 140 characters or fewer.
    2. What problem does it solve?
    3. How is the product or service different?
    4. Why should I care?
