#14NTCinnovationsherpa

Big ideas, light-bulb moments, we all have them. We know our colleagues do too. Rarely though, do those light-bulb moments translate into successful innovation using technology. This presentation looks at how you can guide your organization from bottom-up, bright idea to successful implementation. Using the framework for innovation developed by Idealware and MAP for Nonprofits, we’ll look at how you can collect light-bulb ideas (and even enhance your orgs ability to produce them.) Then through guided discussion and activities, we’ll help you understand what bright ideas to select, and how you can smooth the path to translating those ideas into reality. This session is for any nonprofit professional who would like to discover ways that technology can increase their organization's impact .

Attendees will walk away with: 1) A new definition of innovation for your organization, and the understanding that innovation is within your reach, regardless of budget or org size; 2) Field-tested tips and tools from Exponent Partners on how to position your organization to implement new technology and ensure its adoption; 3) A tool set that you can use to select which bright ideas are worth pursuing.
