Tennis ball coordinators usually work for free. They are motivated by a deep obsessive compulsive disorder.

Drawbacks

  • Outline the intangible costs for the position and program:
Slobbery tennis balls bring people closer together.
  • Are there any possible negative impacts on Free Geek's mission, and if so what?
Tennis balls are technology. I don't understand the question.
  • How will this program affect other programs and staff positions currently in effect?
Everyone will be happier, though they'll have a bit more dog slobber on their hands.
  • How will this program affect other programs and staff positions being considered?
New coordinators might trip over more dogs, but this should be made up for by the fact that they'll trip over less tennis balls.

Benefits

  • Would the program generate income? NO
    • If yes, how much income would be expected once the program is up and running? $______________ / month
    • If yes, how long would it take for the program to get to that point? ________________________
  • How does the program support the mission of Free Geek?
Tennis balls are technology and they're chewy too! They're really great fun. Maybe I don't understand the question.

Measuring Success

  • How can the success of the program be measured?
We could count how many tennis balls there are at Free Geek and then we can count them again later on. The Tennis Ball Coordinator would do this. Then we could report the status of all tennis balls at weekly meetings.
  • For most income generating positions, the costs initially outweigh the benefits. If this is an income generating program, how long until it is expected to break even?
(does not apply)
