How do we collect useful, high-quality data to help us make good decisions and tell our impact story?
Strong habits for data collection and analysis are a critical foundation for every nonprofit. In this three-part series, you will learn fundamental data collection and analysis concepts that will help your organization establish or improve how you use data. Collecting useful, high quality data helps your team make better decisions, allocate resources more effectively, and communicate effectively with donors and funders.
Part two of this series will address qualitative and quantitative data collection and analysis options, and will answer questions like:
- What are the advantages and disadvantages of different data collection methods?
- How do we reduce bias and get high-quality information?
- How can data collection activities be empowering (not extractive) for your constituents?
- How do we make meaning from data we collect?
Part one of this series addressed planning for data collection and analysis activities, and a recording is available on the Colorado Nonprofit Association member network. Part three of this series will address how to address audience appropriate data products to tell your organization’s story and authentically communicate with your community.
Audience members will be invited to offer lessons learned from past data collection and analysis tasks throughout this training to build collective knowledge. Members will also be able to review and add on to key templates in real time which all participants will have access to afterward.
