Business Intelligence for Nonprofits: Power BI

business intelligence nonprofits power bi

In August we posted the first installment of our Business Intelligence for Nonprofits series covering the Amazon Web Services based tool set Quicksight. This month we are taking a look at Microsoft’s Power BI suite. It’s essential for organizations to understand that effective use of business intelligence tools and techniques can transform their stored data into a valuable asset that provides evaluation of past efforts as well as insights needed for future decisions. Find out more on what business intelligence can do in these two papers designed to get nonprofits started on the road to effective BI strategies. Business Intelligence for Nonprofits was released in 2014 and covers some of the early tools adopted by nonprofits. For details on getting started with your own analytics initiative, please download our paper Introduction to Analytics for Nonprofit Executives or contact us directly to discuss your specific needs.

Communication Best Practices: Preparing for Change Before “Go Live”

preparing for change before go live

The months leading to a technology project’s “Go-live” day can be stressful and nerve-wrecking. The time before, during, and after “Go-live” are all critical points of change for your colleagues undergoing the system implementation. It’s important to manage this change proactively from the start and to have a plan to manage this change. Ideally, the days leading to “Go-live” day have included a lot of work to prepare your stakeholders. Hopefully you’ve been engaging them in the project by building the awareness on why the project is important, addressing their “WIIFM” concerns, paving the way with clear expectations on training and using the new system, and holding your team accountable to what is expected. These are all the major tenets in the ADKAR model for change management.

  • Demographics and giving habits are shifting: The Boomers are moving into retirement, the Gen Xers are finally making enough money to give, and despite Millennials destroying everything, they are giving and volunteering more than any other group.
  • Political and economic climates are uncertain: Regardless of your affiliation, it’s clear that politics and the economy are impacting the reasons and amounts people give to nonprofits, as well as which ones they’re giving to.
