Initial evaluation: Registration Software not working, unable to retain staff for registration position, how to make this easier. Need for improved Sponsor tracking, Google Sheets + QBO +Asana are inadequate, database is desired, SalesForce was problematic. Need for streamlined process to obtain, store, edit and transfer conference planning information (teacher bios, names, workshop schedule).
And then I was like “Y’all got this shit silo’d but you know it’s all the same shit right? And I got pissed off and made a test database in AirTable (make one to share that uses fake names).
So I took over a staff meeting, talked the group through a couple of Agile processes, co-developed an evaluation process I call “The Captain Buzzkill Method”, and we split out into working groups and shit is getting done.

Do we call this “Agile for Nonprofits”?
Mention training in Dynamic Governance & Collective Impact?
