At nonprofits, data is often thought of merely as an end product. Issues arise when there isn’t sufficient planning around collection methods, storage standards, and long-term management. The quality of the data suffers and it is not as usable and useful as it could be with better management.
In this course, you’ll become adept at data management, learning how to use data across the organization and over time. You’ll learn key logistical considerations, structures, and processes that can prevent data issues in the future despite everything feeling like a moving target. By the end of this course, you’ll be familiar with structures and processes that can help your organization use data for analysis, decision-making, operations, and more.

This is my second course from NTEN, and again, it is raising the standard for what I expect from my future learning experiences. The instructor Janice Chan was excellent. Very knowledgeable and brought the class along with her. The concepts were broken down into manageable parts, examples were very relatable, and the information was useful and actionable. Please keep up the impeccable work.- Former course participant
