I've worked here at Group for 22 years. And in that time, I've never seen Group and our staff stop learning. Just the other day I was in a meeting with Thom and Joani Schultz who modeled a learner's heart with something they're in charge of that could be improved. They were eager to hear critique and look at a new direction.
That learner's attitude is in all that we do here. It leads to us listening to hundreds of children's ministers every week on the phones, conducting research, holding focus groups, reading your emails, and more. It also leads to aggressive field-testing where we come out a little bloodied and bruised, but that's OK.
We're right in the middle of some enhancements for Buzz--even though it is still a new innovation at Group, we're ready to improve. We've listened to our friends in ministry and we're making Buzz even better! We've spent hours the last few weeks fine-tuning Buzz directions to ensure that they're crystal clear. We've brought in folks who walk through the directions while we take notes and ask questions--all in the name of ensuring that the revised Buzz will be exactly what we've promised for your volunteers--Instant Sunday School--yes, so easy that you just add kids!
We've learned a lot in the last two years. And we're making great changes. Thanks to field testing, we know for a fact that we're delivering extremely clear lessons! Things that may've been confusing to your volunteers in the past are gone! And we're excited to see your volunteers and kids get their hands on Buzz!
