Realizing Your System Implementation Dreams

With so many ways in which a grants management system implementation can go wrong, how can one possibly go right? In this session, the Nathan Cummings Foundation discusses how their senior grants manager, a philanthropic consultant, and a grants management system implementation partner coalesced into a dream team that successfully completed a two-year project to implement Salesforce’s foundationConnect. Here you will learn how to drive change management through staff engagement, reimagine your organization’s grantmaking practices, a dream team of your own, apply an adaptive approach to system implementation, and effectively manage expectations throughout the entire process.
