The Challenges of Scaling Up

Day: 
Thu

Dynabook and SmartGraphs answer the questions: What are the major challenges in scaling up, and how do you plan to meet them?

Date/Time: 
1:45 pm to 3:45 pm
Session Type: 
PI-organized Discussion
Session Materials: 

The goal of the session is to help attendees understand challenges of scaling up and to inform their design of scaling-up strategies for their own projects. The session has four parts: an introduction in which key challenges are identified, two parts in which Dynabook and SmartGraphs describe strategies for meeting challenges, and a part for audience to interactaction. To successfully scale up, organizations need to concisely identify the “value proposition” that appeals to users, which requires an understanding of need, approach, benefits, and competition.
