Do You Really Need a Database?

Is this you?

In this session, you’ll learn data management tips that will help you assess your data needs and how to work better and get data to serve your mission rather than hold the mission hostage.

Whether your data is in a notebook, a spreadsheet or a database we can get effective use of our data if we:

  • store it better
  • identify weak processes or no process
  • can assess the data quality

Remember, data is key to the missions of our organizations. Data impacts:

  • funding
  • responding to questions from the Board, donors and media
  • decisions to end or expand a program

So, let’s talk about it and get more from our data.
