STEP 2: Set concrete goals, tasks, dates and numbers you can track
Featuring 981 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which Hackathon improvements can be made.
Examples; 10 of the 981 standard requirements:
- Even hackers need food. Ensure that there is plenty of food for the taking during the day. The first important question here is: does the venue offer catering or do you need to arrange it yourself?
- Do people with your organization background, hence a network dominated by business contacts, have a higher probability of discovering the entrepreneurial opportunity in a hackathon concept?
- Do you also require applications to include a quick criteria on time commitment for the event - example: If accepted, how much time do you commit to the event - both days?
- How might people participating in hackathons integrate service design methods to cultivate communication and foster collaboration for a successful implementation phase?
- How do you take traditional red team/blue team activities and interpolate a more real-world scenario to create an inclusive experience that gets folks pulses running?
- How might people-centered design enable participants with varying hackathon experiences create a process or tool for building relationships within hackathon teams?
- The need for white space extends to hackathons, too. How do your hackathons allow participants the opportunity to step away from day-to-day world to dream big?
- Volunteer management skills: if you were to hire someone, what volunteer management skills in event production would be most important for him/her to have?
- Can courses involve employees as experiment designers, data gatherers, team leaders, mentors, and other roles that they might exhibit during hackathons?
- Why is it that a hackathon is useful, despite the fact that its so different than how a programmer is typically working in a productive context?

Defining, designing, creating, and implementing a process to solve a business challenge or meet a business objective is the most valuable role; In EVERY company, organization and department.
Unless you are talking a one-time, single-use project within a business, there should be a process. Whether that process is managed and implemented by humans, AI, or a combination of the two, it needs to be designed by someone with a complex enough perspective to ask the right questions. Someone capable of asking the right questions and step back and say, 'What are we really trying to accomplish here? And is there a different way to look at it?'
This Toolkit empowers people to do just that - whether their title is entrepreneur, manager, consultant, (Vice-)President, CxO etc... - they are the people who rule the future. They are the person who asks the right questions to make Hackathon investments work better.
This Hackathon All-Inclusive Toolkit enables You to be that person.
