Leading With Technology Roadmaps
NTEN courses run for one week and are offered twice a year.
Participants will synthesize multiple initiatives into a logically organized sequence.
Participants will learn strategies for co-developing a strong, shared vision of change.
Participants will employ tool-agnostic principles to concisely communicate a multi-faceted plan in a diagram.
Do you have lots of changes involving technology in the next year? A roadmap can be a fantastic communication tool to generate clarity and buy-in. And the great thing about roadmaps is that anyone in any technology-related function can use them. You can use a roadmap to diagram changes to a nonprofit’s IT infrastructure, show planned improvements to how your program department uses technology and lots more.
In this course, we will review human-centered and inclusive approaches for making your vision of the future leap off the page and into the hearts and minds of your teammates. We will review methods you can use to tie the significant changes you’re anticipating to your organization’s overall mission. And we’ll discuss timely considerations, like how and why you should share a plan for the future when it seems like the future is unknowable.
This course is for anyone who plans for and around technology. It’s designed to be equally applicable to team leaders and rockstar “departments of one.”
