The webinar will discuss many of the shortcomings in today’s approach to capturing data and metrics, evaluating the impact of your projects, and the processes in reporting the data to your donors and the community.
We will discuss approaches to developing an IT strategy that better supports tracking of your data, making the data available to donors, partners, and external users.
Additionally, the webinar shall cover the additional internal benefit to the organization when data is shared and how that can create a “learning” organization.
