He will also share examples of digital transformation best practice and guide you through an assessment of your Digital Capability across the six technology domains:

  2. Infrastructure & Technology – your PCs, servers, hardware, software,  email and collaboration

  3. Information systems – your client, service delivery and related supporting information systems

  4. Online presence – your website, social media and online/email marketing campaign systems

  5. Staff IT skills – the ability of your staff to use technology effectively embrace technology change

  6. Security & risk – ensuring your information is kept secure and risks are effectively managed.
     

He will then work with you to identify your priority transformation improvement areas and develop your transformation roadmap.

 

Participants will be expected to complete some homework (sent out in the fortnight before the workshop), to gather information such as IT spend and core systems prior to the workshop to make it as valuable as possible.

 

By the end of this master class you will have:

  • Assessed your use of digital technologies and identify your strengths and weaknesses

  • Understood best practice in how non-profits can use digital technologies to transform their operations – and tips you can use to get there

  • Identified your technology priorities – clarifying will you get the best possible bang for buck

After examining the current donor landscape and supporter trends, this masterclass will work with participants to go through each of the essential organisational readiness strategies that must be in place to ensure growth and sustainability.

 

What do your stakeholders expect? From strong governance and performance management, to monitoring and evaluation frameworks and outcomes reporting, delegates will work through a series of check lists, processes and systems to self-score where your nonprofit is flourishing and where you need to focus your attention to evolve into a sustainable NFP that is best placed to achieve your mission and build stronger communities.

 

The masterclass will cover:

  1. Donor trends – a brief overview of giving in Australia

  2. Strong governance frameworks – embedding strategy and performance measurement from the top down

  3. Essential operational systems and frameworks

  4. Program planning including monitoring and evaluation frameworks

  5. Demonstrating impact

 

Participants will be given a pre-masterclass check list to self-score your NFP's current funding readiness; essentially a funding health check. At the conclusion, you will re-score, giving yourself a measure of where you need to invest most resources to continue evolving and meeting community demand for your services.
