Agile for Nonprofits: How to Thrive in the Tech Age

Submitted by: Sarah Olivieri | PivotGround


With the rise of the internet and the impact of big data, the world has changed. Unfortunately, most nonprofits can’t move or adapt at a pace that is the new normal and the standard model for strategic planning hasn’t been updated to meet the demands of this new world. It’s time to throw out your strategic plan and embrace a better way. In this session you’ll learn the core principles for thriving in the technology age, and a new way of setting goals that connects your daily activities to your larger mission. Concepts birthed by the shapers of the internet such as agile principles, working in sprints, iterative project development, and more should inform how you operate, empower your team to become a team of leaders, and help you pivot into the future.

Learning Outcomes

  • Why traditional strategic planning may actually be holding you back
  • The three key elements required for thriving in the digital age
  • How to get started now with a framework for setting better goals (participants will receive a workbook with this framework)

Target Audience

ED’s, Department leads, board members

Additional Speakers

A nonprofit who adopted this new way of working.
