Dear Bon Education Team!
I wanted to wish you all a very happy new year and thank you for your hard work and dedication in 2011.
We are really excited to finally launch BB and Sam (our interactive digital literature app) in 2012 – that’s one of our big goals we have for this year. With all of your fabulous talents and skills I know we can make the final push these next two months towards a successful launch on the app store. We will also continue to grow and build our training and consulting business working with schools, teachers and students to empower and personalize their learning through technology.
I read an article in the NY Times this morning about the CEO of IBM. He had these four questions that guided his management of IBM. These are great reflection prompts, both from a company perspective as well as an individual perspective. (link)
- “Why would someone spend their money with you — so what is unique about you?”
- “Why would somebody work for you?”
- “Why would society allow you to operate in their defined geography — their country?”
- “And why would somebody invest their money with you?”
The answers to these questions are where we’re going with Bon Education. It’s about focusing on the purpose and impact of the work we do. I trust that if we are happy with our answers to these questions the financial returns required to sustain and grow Bon Education will follow. (more…)
