As a new org, with a new set of responsibilities, what we need is the
1. Strategic Planning
* Where do we see ourselves in 3, 5, and 10 years
* Marketing Strategy (which can include conferences, etc.)
* Business Model (what are our revenue sources and how we get them,
what are the inputs and outputs for our resources--time included)
2. A Budget
* Given our current situation, what can we afford
* Based on different assumptions, what might we be able to afford if
we meet our goals.
This is a top-down approach. A bottom-up approach is "I found an
awesome opportunity, let's go for it." I have found, through my
experience, that both are important.
