Getting to the "Good Stuff": Evidence-Based Decision Making for Nonprofits
You have more types and greater amounts of data readily available to you than ever before. In fact, the combination of data and tools available in 2015 theoretically allows you to move beyond the standard operational dashboards you've been using for years and get to the "good stuff," where you can start asking meaningful, mission-driven questions and use data to inform your decision-making processes around them. But how do we do this? Peter Houstle and Elizabeth Engel will share insights and case studies with you from their recently released whitepaper designed to teach you what your nonprofit needs to know to use these new capabilities effectively to make evidence-based decisions.
