Deep listening is a key element to that leadership.

Reduce Risk During Data Migration

Every nonprofit has a wealth of data. Everything from volunteer contact information to complex donation history is housed in an elaborate database. This digital trail of good work done over many years is frequently stored and accessed from various places. Without efficient access to that information, an organization’s ability to complete their mission becomes much harder. As organizations grow and update technology, whether it’s new equipment, cloud services or new processes, the issue of data migration is an essential concern that has to be addressed carefully.

Case Study: Taking Control of Your Diabetes

Taking Control of Your Diabetes is a unique organization that has developed and expanded their services for patients and caregivers since their inception. They host a range of small and large events each year bringing together both patients and caregivers to learn the latest techniques and strategies in a collaborative environment. The events are successful at improving the relationships and communications skills between patients and providers. These events are very successful, but they keep TCOYD’s small team frequently away from the office. Over time, managing and organizing these events had become more difficult and time consuming. They realized they needed a new system that would serve their current needs and be able to grow with them in the future.
