How Nonprofit Organizations Can Use Process Management to Thrive During Growth, Transition, and Turnover
Thursday, Sept. 14, 2017, 2-5 p.m. in #202 JC Penney Conference Center (on the UMSL north campus)
When organizations are people-driven rather than process-driven, they become vulnerable to unnecessary disruption, delays, and setbacks during times to transition and turnover. However, when organizations create cohesive, well-considered, and documented processes for carrying out their most important work, they can ensure that important knowledge, learning, and tasks don’t fall between the cracks. In this workshop, we’ll learn collaborative and creative ways to design and improve processes that will solve problems, reduce burden, improve effectiveness, and strengthen teams so they can work more seamlessly together.
Instructor Sarah Buek has worked for the past 13 years in the non-profit sector first as a clinical social worker and later in program management, evaluation, and quality improvement. As a funder and consultant, she’s led dozens of non-profits in the development of Theories of Change and Logic Models, the design of data collection tools and processes, the creation of quality improvement systems, and the use of performance management to create cultures of learning and continuous improvement. Her passion is equipping human service professionals and organizations with the thought processes and tools necessary to articulate, measure, and increase their effectiveness and efficiency.
