Bridgespan Report Shows Nonprofits Are Eager to Share Support Functions

How can nonprofits collaborate to reduce costs and make more efficient use of technology?  A recent study conducted by Bridgespan shows that nonprofit CEOs have had good luck when they share services with other nonprofits in their sector and they are looking to do more.  What are the two biggest barriers they face in trying to structure these collaborations?

1)      Finding partners

2)      Getting funding

Collaborative Technology Management is all about sharing skilled resources.  TNB is looking for opportunities to help nonprofits work together to build solutions using shared resources.  One of our ideas is to create an IT consortium dedicated to the idea that schools can collaborate to reduce costs and make better use of technology, both in the back office and in the classroom.

Stay tuned!
