We hear so much about managing our own fitness, but how’s your organization’s data fitness? Like staying in shape yourself, data fitness is about your nonprofit’s ability to respond well to outside challenges, adapt and bounce back, and most important get to where you want to go as efficiently as possible. Paul Collier of CoEffect has laid out five key traits of data fitness. We cover each one of these in today’s episode, and show steps that anyone can take to improve their, their team, and their organization’s data fitness.
Paul offers several great resources in the show. You can get them here:
