Many nonprofits think of innovation as a luxury they can’t afford. Staff time and budgets are limited, and improving the way they use technology seems out of reach. But technology can offer straightforward, inexpensive means of providing higher quality services and create numerous opportunities to do more with less—even in our current economic climate. Which makes innovation something organizations can no longer afford not to embrace. Chris Tuttle, Expert Trainer at Idealware, will highlight key strategies and best practices for everyday innovation along with real-world examples, providing a framework for innovation appropriate for every nonprofit.
Chris Tuttle discusses Innovation in an interview with Allison Stafford of NCTech4Good.
