eXtension Hosts Critical Success Factors and Metrics National Discussion Sessions

Please join us for one of three national discussions on a set of Critical Success Factors and Metrics (CSF/M) that eXtension is proposing. Identifying these CSF/M is one of the milestones in eXtension’s 2011-14 Strategic Roadmap. The purpose is to provide a concise set of CSF/M that represent what eXtension is about, what can be reasonably documented and reported, and the added value eXtension brings as a resource to the Cooperative Extension System (CES). The proposed CSF/M were developed by eXtension staff with review and input from a CSF/M Task Force including Extension Director/Administrator representatives from each of the five CES regions, a NIFA representative, and the chair of the eXtension Governing Committee.

The focus of each session will be to review the CSF/M and to invite input from all CES personnel. There will be three 60-minute sessions on October 20, 24, and 26, beginning at 2:00 p.m. ET. We do hope that you will be able to participate in one of these three sessions to see the CSF/M we are proposing and provide your input!

To participate in a session, go to http://connect.extension.iastate.edu/learn on one of the three dates listed above at 2:00 p.m. ET. The sessions are also listed in our Learn application at http://www.extension.org/learn

For questions or more information, please contact Mike Lambur (mike.lambur@extension.edu).
