Forget the tired mantra do more with less and instead, explore a real shift of thinking that has the power to transform how your organization meets mission, anticipates challenges and creates a healthier work environment. Step briefly into the world of technology – one of constant change – to learn the origins of the Agile and Scrum frameworks. Move to key steps of the implementation cycle and what they look like for nonprofits. Impact, retention and other outcomes bring strategies to life. Attendees will learn the fundamentals of the framework, how to take one concept for test-drive and the key questions to answer when considering department or organization-wide implementation. This workshop is appropriate for any sized nonprofit in any sized market. Board members encouraged to attend as well as staff.
