Tech Planning 101

Technology Trouble

Not long ago, nonprofits like Alexander Youth Network and Hospitality House were frustrated by their technology, and overwhelmed by the unlimited options and their limited budgets.

Until they made a technology plan.

Now, they are confident in making tech decisions, and spend money on the right tools at the right time. Gone are the days of struggling through multiple tech options.


Tech Planning 101

At Tech Planning 101, nonprofits will hear from the experts on how to implement a successful technology plan. This Nonprofit Insights forum is for nonprofits that:

  • Have never completed a technology plan/assessment or
  • Have not reassessed their technology plan in several years

The conversation will be relevant to nonprofits of all sizes and directed at nonprofit leadership, IT directors/managers, the person who does 8,000 things at their nonprofit (randomly including replacing hardware), etc.

The panel (details below) will be a mix of corporate and nonprofit representatives who have experience with technology planning. Conversation topics include:

  • Why are technology plans relevant/important to nonprofits?
  • What does the process of creating a technology plan look like?
  • How often should technology plans be completed/reassessed?
  • We have a technology plan, now what? How does an organization successfully use the document?
  • Are technology plans fixed or dynamic plans?
