OE Peer Group #2: Improving Networked Nonprofit Practices:
This peer group will use the “Crawl, Walk, Run, Fly” Maturity of Practice framework for Networked Nonprofits to improve their use of networks or social media. Participants will use the assessment tool to gauge their current level and identify areas for improvement. Each session will feature a case study and practical tips and measurement techniques for getting to the next level. The topics will include capacity/ culture, strategy/measurement, monitoring, engagement/content and continuous improvement/learning from data. Participants will be expected to apply some of the techniques and ideas between sessions and discuss what worked and what didn’t. Participants will use a wiki to keep an action learning journal and to share their insights. There will be a learning culmination event at the end of the program, an opportunity for participants to formally present what they learned. .
