About the event
In this session, we will explore how evaluators can support successful database implementation. As more and more nonprofit organizations struggle with how to collect, store, access, and analyze their data, they may find themselves working with multiple systems, including funder-required databases, and/or outdated technology. New data systems, such as customer relationship management (CRM) products and other database technology, afford organizations opportunities to streamline their data workflows. However, responsibility for successful implementation may fall to the “data person” (the evaluator). In this demonstration, we will share our experiences and lessons learned in serving as or working with internal evaluators at nonprofit organizations on 5 key phases of a successful database implementation: assessing opportunity; scoping the project and choosing a platform/vendor; designing and planning the system; implementing and building the system, and supporting the system. There will be time for questions and a resource guide will be provided.
Session led by: Laura Beals, Diamond St. Thomas, & Gregor Thomas
