Digital Planning with the TechSoup Digital Transformation Framework – Video Resources

Digital Planning with the TechSoup Digital Transformation Framework – Video Resources

This is a series of 15 short video resources on digital transformation planning, free for everyone to access. You can watch the videos directly on the details page (below).

Digital Transformation is a broad term that has come to represent the benefits that are derived from digitizing operations and processes. Nonprofit organizations have been implementing and managing many digital transformation projects, especially in the last 3 years due to the remote program delivery that was forced by the Covid-19 pandemic. However, in many cases these projects have been hard to manage and often undertaken in addition to the core programs that the nonprofit teams deliver. Buy-in with leadership and teams is challenging, and once the project is complete, it is difficult to get teams to adopt the new technologies and processes and hard to measure and prove the impact of the technology adopted.

The TechSoup Digital Transformation Framework was developed to align your digital transformation goals with your mission and impact objectives. This framework also lists six critical functional areas for any organization to plan for priorities and tactics.

(Learn more about the TS Digital Transformation Framework and how to use the TS Digital Assessment Tool to help with your digital planning)

Check out the best practices and tips from TechSoup and partner organization experts regarding how to digitize the different focus areas of your nonprofit work:
