The Information Gathering Challenge

This week on #grantchat we are discussing the challenge of information gathering with Jo Miller.

We are constantly seeking information and data including information about the history and visions of the organizations where we work, the constituents we want to help, the community needs we want to address, the impact we are making, and about our partners, funders, and staff.  Gathering data for a grant professional, nonprofit consultant, or project manager can take an overwhelming amount of time and be an incredible challenge.  This week on GrantChat, we will discuss these challenges and how we can  overcome information gathering challenges?
