How are we going to be successful
Success is defined in many different ways by different people. It is individualized based on the person as well as the task at hand. Thatâ€™s what makes defining success so difficult for us. We have a large group of people that are all going to have different ideas about what to consider â€˜successfulâ€™ for our site. On the other hand, we do have one common task: creating an RNC site. It was a good idea to outline all of our goals in the discussion forums because these will give us a more tangible idea of our success by judging how well weâ€™ve accomplished what weâ€™ve outlined.
Specifically for us, I think success will be measured based on how well we accomplish the tasks weâ€™ve set for ourselves. Making the site interactive and educational/informative are two big themes being thrown around at the moment. These are tangible ideas that we can easily judge whether or not weâ€™ve accomplished them. Success is a long process, however, and we will
not be able to determine if weâ€™ve been successful until we have a finished project. We can make sure we stay on the right path and are constantly working towards our site goals, but ultimately there is always more improvement and more work that can be done. For now, being successful will mean that we are developing our ideas thoroughly and working collaboratively to reach our goals that we are currently setting.
