How can you present information to your board and supporters in a meaningful way? Businesses usually use net profit as a key measure of success but for nonprofits, it is more difficult. Too often, nonprofits think first about strategies or programs and then try to measure what they achieve. The point is not just to “account for” or track what you’re already doing but to determine its value. This workshop will help you zone in on what matters and also how to present it in easy to understand metrics that show trends that are affecting your organization.
- Why measurements and metrics are important
- The difference between outputs and outcomes
What’s worth tracking? Developing your Key Performance Indicators (KPIs)
- How to measure the important stuff
- Metric reporting – showing trends vs. monthly or seasonable changes
- Creating your dashboard
Sharing your metrics and trends in easy to understand formats
This is an interactive learning opportunity and you will work in groups to identify your key metrics. We will provide each participant with a digital work file with a variety of templates for reporting your metrics and showing them in chart formats.
