Module 6: December 3, 2021
Technology-related Resilience Strategy
Instructor: Dr. Kristina Jaskyte Bahr, University of Georgia
The COVID-19 crisis has demonstrated that various nonprofits can shift some of their services from physical to virtual delivery. This has held true for many schools and universities, museums, performing arts organizations, health care institutions, and numerous other organizations. These experiences demonstrate that nonprofits may enhance their resilience through their capacities to change, adapt, or supplement the technologies with which they address their missions. This module examines how nonprofit organizations can develop and manage technology-related resilience. It explores priority areas for developing technology-based resilience and emphasizes the importance of leadership and organizational culture for developing and maintaining this resilience. It offers a variety of ways that nonprofits can experiment and innovate with alternative technologies to achieve their mission and goals.
