Fol­low­ing the con­clu­sion of the con­tract and based upon field testers’ feed­back, IBM will devel­op a com­pre­hen­sive plan for the full launch of GRIT. GRIT is the first instan­ti­a­tion of a big­ger plat­form called THRIVE360° of Men­tal Fit­ness, which IBM intends to deploy with oth­er com­mu­ni­ties under stress or in transition.”
