Get 'Er Done: Surveying Digital Project Management Tools

Nonprofit projects come in all types and sizes, and managing them is rarely your sole job. Success is often found not in simply getting “the thing” done, but in managing the process along the way. When multiple deadlines, teammates, and deliverables are involved, things can get scary. 

There are many digital tools out there to help you tackle your projects and "get 'er done"—from full-blown project management platforms to communication and file-sharing tools. Get a survey of the digital project management tools out there with advice and opinions from the pros. 

Join PDXTech4Good and project management pros from around Portland for a roundtable conversation on digital project management tools. We'll explore:

FMYI
Trello
Basecamp
Jira
Slack 
and more!

AUDIENCE

This introductory event is designed for people who don't use project management tools yet, and need direction and advice in selecting the right one.

WHAT YOU'LL GET OUT OF PDXTECH4GOOD EVENTS

Nonprofit staffers will find a friendly, welcoming atmosphere for those not experienced with technology, and many chances to ask questions of tech-experienced nonprofits and experts.

Techies will find opportunities to hear the real-world stories of nonprofit clients, and put their own expertise to social good — as well as the potential for lasting relationships (be they paid or volunteer) with leading organizations in our community.

Activists and community organizers will see and be given the chance to present on successful uses of technology for social change. We'll explore how technology can help support activism and where activism can push it forward.

    Thank you all for coming out! I wanted to follow up with kudos to the inspiration for my intro: I've learned a lot from Ash Shepherd, Education Director at NTEN, and Ním Wunnan, who teaches a stellar project management course at HackOregon. Look 'em up!

    Thanks for a great event! It was nice meeting folks and getting a chance to give a demo of the FMYI platform. If you have any questions about tracking team task processes, converting spreadsheets into project databases, or anything else, my email is: [masked]

    Are any of the systems discussed be related to donor data?

      Thanks for asking! I'm not sure, as I'm not an expert in all the tools—so that'd be a would question to bring. My guess is there might be some integrations possible, between donor databases and project management tools, using something like Zapier. But that would really depend on which tools you're using and whether they support integrations.

      A good question - not a would question :)
