I’m so excited! My second book, Measuring the Networked Nonprofit, co-authored with KD Paine, will be launching in October! Expect to hear more about where to hear us speak about the book or come toast us at a book party shortly, but in the meantime you can pre-order the book now!
I will continue my training and teaching practice and will be leading a peer learning network through my work at the Packard Foundation and also other places. Next up is a workshop I will lead at the Stanford SSIR’s Nonprofit Management Institute. In my next book, we introduce a framework called “Crawl, Walk, Run, Fly” to help nonprofits figure out what incremental steps they need to take to get to the next level of networked nonprofit practice. It is designed to help them understand and measure the nature of the change process as they move through it. The model indicates areas where organizations should focus time and learning to move to the next stage. I will be using it in the workshop.
I wrote an overview of the model over at the SSIR blog, but have also developed a detailed assessment tool that you can download for free and use along with the book.
But, do come and join the discussion over in the comments at the SSIR blog. Is your organization leading with a network mindset? Is your organization making the transformation? What level is your organization? What do you need to get to the next phase?
