Half-Day Workshop: How to Succeed in Technology Failure without Really Leading (Pre-registration required)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

#14NTCleadingtech

Register for this pre-conference workshop here.

Technology implementation is becoming more critical to nonprofit mission success every year. It's not just the nuts and bolts that keep your staff online, its the expansion of technology into mission, program, communications, development, and ultimately organizing that nonprofits seek to achieve. Using this broadened definition of 'technology,' we know that the failure rates of these implementations are extremely high - but why? These sessions will explore at both the strategic and tactical levels the constraints under which nonprofits must implement technology, the role strong internal leadership and understanding plays in their success, and ultimately, how to both succeed and to learn from inevitable failure to position your organization to fail in small, non-disruptive ways, learn from mistakes, and iterate for long term tech - and tech leadership - success. Class limited to 50 people. Pre-Registration Required
