Digital project management training for charities and non-profits

Edit 13/07/17 – The next course is on 4th September. Details are on our website and tickets are available on Eventbrite.

Sarah Jackson of Kestrel Copy and I have developed a training day to help charities and non-profits do excellent digital project management. We ran a pilot of the course in June and we’re planning to run it again in Autumn.

The course covers how to

  • carry out internal research and review your existing site
  • set website objectives and choose the best performance metrics
  • get to know your users, engage your staff, and keep your stakeholders happy
  • choose the right agency, and know what red flags to look out for
  • make the most of your budget and stay on schedule
  • use Agile, user stories, wireframes, and develop your minimum viable product
  • carry out a content audit and make a realistic content migration plan
  • steer clear of launch day panic.

It was really rewarding to do something in a new sector, and fun to work in collaboration with Sarah. People said they found it useful and gave universally positive feedback. My favourite piece of feedback was

“Really enjoyed it and found it very useful. Met my goal of feeling confident about having to take on quite a bit of large digital projects in future.”

It’s nice to think that the day helped people feel more confident about their jobs, and as a result some charities will have better digital delivery in future.
