8:50 am      Creating an innovative work environment

As many nonprofit organizations struggle to maximize the use of their resources while simultaneously handling more complex social problems, creativity becomes especially important. Certain work environments can contribute to increased levels of creativity. So it is important that the managers of nonprofit organizations have tools that allow them to develop a work context that enhances employee creativity.  Ideas include:  online collaboration, increased ability to access information, office layout and shared space, participatory management and more.

10:50 am Using Technology as Part of a Strategic Plan

Nonprofit organizations and government agencies face a lot of the same challenges that many businesses face, but technology planning can help mitigate a range of challenges and reap greater rewards. Many organizations struggle to keep up with the exponential pace of technology change, and are not able to capitalize on its potential or are so focused on it as a basic operational or infrastructure tool that opportunities for technology to truly drive value and work in service to mission are missed.  Strategic technology planning can help change that.

11:30am     Organizational Effectiveness

The effectiveness or results achieved by an organization are at the intersection of people and culture. Successful organizations thrive because they are well run from a business function and process perspective.  Today’s successful businesses also have the flexibility to adapt to a changing customer and competitive environment.  Their employees are well-motivated, engaged in the work they are doing, and accepting of the changes necessary for the organization to maintain its cutting edge.  They recognize the need for collaboration and teamwork to achieve organization goals.  Workforce effectiveness is a product of selecting the right mix of individuals and then developing and motivating the workforce so the organization can accomplish its mission more effectively than its competitors.
