Rants About Grants

Dr. Changelove - Nonprofits and Change Management

Posted by Dahna Goldstein on Wed, Apr, 11, 2012 @ 09:04 AM

This is just too cool not to share. 

Last week was NTC, the nonprofit technology conference, hosted by NTEN.  It's a gathering of 1,750 nonprofit technology professionals and accidental techies for three days of learning, sharing, and a good deal of general geekiness.

I had the pleasure of presenting with Marc Baizman of My Computer Guy Nonprofit Technology Consulting and Rose de Fremery of American Jewish World Service, two awesome co-presenters.  Our session, on the first morning of the conference, was entitled, "Dr. Changelove, or: How My Org Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Technology."

We talked about change management for successful technology iniatives: how to frame your project in the context of your organizational dynamics and your position in the organization, how some technology initiatives are instigated by the people leading them, and others are dictated by senior management, and how to handle each type of initiative.

But rather than telling you more about the session, I can show you, thanks to Rob Cottingham of Noise to Signal.  Rob live-blogged NTC in the form of cartoons, and Marc, Rose and I were lucky enough to have Rob attend our session.

So here is Dr. Changelove, in cartoon form:
