Name: Kayla Silverstein
This webinar is brought to you by our friends at Nonprofit Utopia and Net Impact Chicago.
Nonprofit and Social Good Technology Month brings you a series of virtual events featuring thought leaders from U.S., Canada and the U.K. You will hear valuable tips and participate in hands-on product demonstrations to help you harness the power of technology to make a greater social impact in the age of COVID-19.
We’ve all seen lopsided, piecemeal technology planning, in which the people making the purchase decision or taking the lead in planning are not the ones who are actually using the technology to get their jobs done. Or, technology planning is done in a vacuum, with little regard for an organization’s mission, or how line managers, administrators and fundraisers actually do their jobs.
This panel discussion will help you better understand how to align your technology planning with your strategic planning and day-to-day operations. The topics and panelists include:
- How to conduct a technology needs assessment: Ryan Peasley, Sr. Manager, Wipfli
- Using TechSoup as a resource: Elijah van der Giessen, NetSquared Community Manager for TechSoup
- How to develop a technology plan that aligns with strategic plan: Mike Knapp, Strategy and Execution Superhero, Incrementa Consulting
- Incorporating the agile framework into the strategic planning process: Nancy Batterman, Executive Coach and Nonprofit Strategist
