Presentation Slides

This first in a series webinar provides an overview of the NGO Reference Model. We looked at how some organizations are already using the model and take a deep-dive into a couple of process groups to build understanding of the model. We discuss a process for getting to know the model and finish with a task ready for Webinar #2.

This webinar included time at the end for questions and discussion. We lay the groundwork for what we will learn in Webinar #2; Understanding the model in detail and Webinar #3 Benchmarking results and introduction to the NetHope Digital NGO initiative.


To maximize learning and benefit, those attending webinar #2 are being asked to use their organization’s mission to contextualize the NGO Reference Model - Activity Table and roughly map which of their applications support which parts of the model. These submissions together with any questions will be made in advance of webinar #2.
