This summer, my talented colleague Tim Johnston, who also happens to be NPower's Chief Technology Officer was invited by our client the Eurasia Foundation to attend a staff meeting in Istanbul. As you can imagine, this engagement was quite a coup for our little 'ole DC based organization.
Glamour aside, the interesting thing about this engagement is that the Eurasia Foundation faces many of the same challenges that we all face. Namely, how do we ensure that information is shared across the organization and get everyone on the same page? Or, to put it more technically - what in world do we do with all of this data!
Data is one of those tricky things. Did you ever notice how it seems to take on a life of it's own? We've all had the experience of rushing in vain to get out a grant for a funder or pulling out our hair over the prospect of creating a report on our program results.
Well, I'm here to say that, like the Eurasia Foundation, you're not alone! You can find and use a tool that will help you to master your organizational information and share it widely. And it doesn't have to cost you an arm and a leg.
