Slowly Does it Every Time


I spent some time last week reading over some of the great advice that we got from this year's Technology Innovation Awards Applicants. You can learn more about our Annual Award and Luncheon here.
This advice came through loud and clear and reminded me of Aesop's famous fable, The Tortoise and the Hare.
"It's not important to be on the bleeding edge of technology. It's more important to define your requirements and determine what your users (staff, board members and volunteers) really need and will USE. We didn't change our systems overnight. We took our time doing the research. Now we are reaping the rewards. We know we have the right systems in place because our people are on board."
