I have been pretty busy at work and at home but found a smidgen of time to do a few little things to possible help the greater good or inspire some thoughts. So I thought I would share those here, in case both of my readers were interested.
First, John Merritt and I had a great time presenting during the Online Nonprofit Technology Conference for NTEN. We broke down our thoughts about how to approach IT Alignment based on a typical org chart. After all an org chart does tell you a lot about how IT is viewed in your org. As we went through the slides we took turns sharing examples of how we approached each part of the org, plus highlighted successes and failures in those efforts. Thanks to the awesome staff at NTEN for including us! So here is that presentation:
NTEN Blog Guest Post!
I was also invited to write a guest post for the NTEN blog, how cool is that!?!? They gave me free reign on topic but set a word limit. Lucky for them I was a little focused that day and didnt end up talking about flying monkeys improve air quality or how lightsabres are awesome hedge clippers. Rather I stayed on topic and talked about IT Alignment, but I did completely ignore their suggested word limit! CLICK HERE TO READ THIS AMAZING POST! (ok over did it there)
IT Guy to Fundraisers: Partner With Us
I was asked by Fundraising Success to write an article based on my planned participation in the ONTC. So I decided to have a little fun with the friendly people over in Financial Development. They can be so serious about raising all that money and stuff. Well anyway, you can read that article by clicking here, no maybe here, no wait here.
I will get back to the 11 part series next week, but at this rate I wont even finish this year.
