Business Intelligence and Analytics:

Improving Non-profit Operational Efficiency

Business Intelligence and Analytics

Technology has provided an array of new analytical tools that can produce timely and accurate reports that measure performance of an organization’s operations against its goals and objectives.  The results of such analysis leads to a clearer understanding of how one’s organization is doing in relation to established benchmarks.  In turn, the reports produced – in many cases known as “dashboards” – will assist management (and consultants engaged to design and oversee changes) to implement the necessary changes to address the identified issues.  In the not for profit and charitable world, competition has created challenges for many organizations working in the same sectors to secure financial support to achieve their goals.  In order to advance their work, charities have to continually improve on what they do and how they do it.  The adoption of business analytics and business intelligence tools does assist charitable organizations to grapple with the challenges they face, and adopt new and varied approaches.
