Taking your digital project from an idea into an investment

24 March 2022, 9:30am - 10:30am

The expectations of your stakeholders have never been higher. Remaining relevant to your always ‘connected’ members and donors whilst striving to improve internal efficiencies means that non-profits are working harder than ever to ensure they have the right tech to support their ambitions.

It’s not just a case of identifying your aspirations but also understanding the technology needed to support these, whether that’s a tech refresh or a complete overhaul of your website, CRM or other digital technology.

However complex, getting your digital project from an idea to being signed off and securing buy-in usually rests on a Business Case which illustrates your case for change. One question is, should all strategy be digital or is digital part of your strategy?

We’ll discuss how to get your digital project off to the right start to ensure it delivers a lasting impact.
