New Article... And Then Some
We have a new article up today researched and written in partnership with our friends at the Minnesota-based MAP for Nonprofits. The article was published in the March edition of the NTEN:Change journal, a free resource to which you should already be subscribed, but the bigger news is that it is a summary of a detailed report we'll be releasing later this week. Here's a little more about the report, which is the culmination of nearly a year's worth of work from both our organizations:
"Can nonprofits take better advantage of available technologies to improve the services they deliver, and the ways in which they deliver them? To find out, MAP for Nonprofits and Idealware surveyed 180 Minnesota human service organizations about how they were using technology, and then interviewed more than two dozen staff members from organizations that were using it in effective or interesting ways. The research reveals a number ofinnovative approaches to service delivery that make the most of new and existing technology. From the simple and remarkable to the complex and expensive, these implementations serve as examples of opportunities for everyday innovation that can transform how, and how effectively, organizations meet their missions."
The full report, Unleashing Innovation: Using Everyday Technology to Improve Nonprofit Services, includes detailed research analysis and case studies of nine organizations doing interesting things with technology. Watch this blog for information about how to get a copy of the report.
