The BWF consulting team just compiled results from the 6th annual nonprofit survey on the way our industry is leveraging data analytics. The survey covers the kinds of projects we perform, the statistical methods used, tools/software used, personnel mix, how we measure value, and staff competency.
While most of us apply analytics for better prospecting, since last year’s survey, there’s been increased interest in pursuing other business challenges like financial forecasting and program performance analysis.
