Building Trust and Transparency in Grantmaking Through an Agile Mindset

Wednesday, July 22, 2020, 12:00pm – 1:00pm EDT

Agile Methodologies is a process used in software development to support thinking and processes to be responsive to changing needs. This webinar from 2020 JFN conference sponsor, the grants management software company Foundant Technologies, explores how this framework can support philanthropists in their work explores how it has adopted this framework to support philanthropists in their work, by helping 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. Over the hour, we’ll discuss:

  • What does agile look like at an organization or a process level?
  • Why do agile methodologies lend themselves to philanthropy so well?
  • What does an agile funding process look like?
  • How can you implement agile methodologies at your foundation/organization?

"Agile is the ability to create and respond to change. It is a way of dealing with, and ultimately succeeding in, an uncertain and turbulent environment." -- Agile Alliance
