You’ve decided to move to a technology-based solution that enables your staff and volunteers to reach the next level of excellence in nonprofit service delivery and management.

This critical and exciting step represents a change—a big transformation in the way your nonprofit will manage consumer/client record-keeping, service provision, volunteer tracking and matching, workflow enhancement among staff, and impact reporting to your board and all funding sources. You realize that your staff needs to be enthusiastic supporters of this change. Board members may need to approve your decision, or at the very least be unanimously encouraging. Likely everyone will end up using the software, so you want to help them get educated and prepared. Like the good nonprofit executive that you are, you want to do your homework and present a compelling story to your “audience”: you want to give them both the ROI facts and accurately describe the benefits—to the organization and your clients—of moving to technology-based information management. The challenge: it’s a big story with lots of moving parts. How do you clearly make your case, communicating the positive impact that will result for your organization, service provision, and funding?
