Trust and Transparency Through an Agile Mindset

Join this complimentary webinar sponsored and presented by Foundant Technologies.

Today’s world requires us to be responsive to changing needs – shifting from an original plan to plan B, C, and sometimes even D. At Foundant, we’ve worked to implement Agile Methodologies in our software development over the past year. Through this process, we’ve come to learn that “Agile” is not just for developers, but helps people and processes align, scale, and reach goals with a clear purpose and outcome.

Various agile frameworks can be used to pivot processes and align stakeholders across all functions. Finding the right framework for you means adopting a common language and fine-tuning your processes to create transparency, predictability, and trust.

This webinar shares Foundant Technologies’ experience adopting Agile Methodologies, what we’ve learned, and why we feel “going agile” is a good fit for your grantmaking and scholarship management processes.

We’ll discuss:

  1. What does agile look like at an organization or a process level?
  2. Why do agile methodologies lend themselves to philanthropy so well?
  3. What does an agile funding process look like?
  4. How can you leverage what Foundant has learned to implement agile methodologies at your organization?
