Successful participation in the International Conference for the digital transformation of NGOs ...

32 participants from 7 countries attended the event and considered that the issue of digital transformation must be one of the crucial premises for the development of NGO.

On February 15, iWith.org hosted the International Conference for the digital transformation of youth organizations, the promotion of peace and human rights. ('Digital Transformation of youth organizations promoting pace and human rights').



 
 
32 participants from Spain, Romania, Greece, Bulgaria, Poland, Hungary and Latvia participated in the Conference and had the opportunity to reflect on the topic of digital transformation.
 
The conference was the final public event within the TURN ONline strategic partnership project, funded by the Erasmus Plus program and which has been developed throughout 2018.
 
Within the conference presented the results of the project developed in four themes: digital management, online communication, online learning and online activism. The participants also had the opportunity to attend the following workshops:
 
  • Digital tools for NGO management: Trello, Asana and Freedcamp.
  • How to communicate peace and human rights
  • Online activism: best practices and future perspectives.
  • E-learning in the field of youth: how to create an online course within youth NGOs.
 
Online activism is a field, within the digital environment, quite new in this field and during the conference the best practices that inspired the participants to organize their own actions of online activism were presented.
 
Throughout the conference, participants also had the opportunity to discuss approaches and actions aimed at promoting communication for peace and human rights, such as narration and the types of communication campaigns that can be promoted in this regard. These approaches allowed the participants to be more efficient in their communication work.
 
The attendees stressed that the conference has given them the opportunity to have at their disposal more tools and resources to deepen more in the digital field and, in this way, develop more precise actions within the field of communication.

What is the 'Agile' methodology and how can it help your organization?

What is the 'Agile' methodology and how can it help your organization?

'Agile' is much more than a methodology for the development of projects that require speed and flexibility, it is a philosophy that involves a different way of working and organizing.

Each project is 'chopped' into small parts that have to be completed and delivered in a few weeks. The objective is to develop quality products and services that respond to the needs of customers whose priorities change at a growing rate.



 
These methodologies were born in the software development industry, when companies in this sector understood that the traditional way of working delayed the delivery of the final product a lot. Processes normally based on a closed contract, with little communication from the workers, which led to poor quality deliverables.
 
In 2001, the CEOs of the main software companies in Utah met. There they shared the best practices of each company and created the 'Agile Manifesto'.
 
A model of continuous improvement in which it is planned, created, the result is checked and improved. Something that is constant and fast, with reduced delivery times that seek to avoid dispersion and focus all attention on a task entrusted.
 

The main advantages of 'agile' are:

 
1. Improve quality: Minimize errors in deliverables and improve the experience and functionality for the client.
2. Greater commitment: Improves employee satisfaction and generates team awareness.
3. Speed: Shortens production cycles and minimizes reaction times and decision making.
4. Increased productivity: By allocating resources better, and more dynamically, improves production according to the priorities of the company.
 

Its operation in the work environment

 
To give an example, in the scrum framework, the project is divided into small parts that have to be completed and delivered in short terms, called 'sprints'. In this way, if any changes have to be made, only changes are made to the party involved and in a very short time. At iwith.org we use the Scrum methodology since 2013.
 
Another of the most characteristic features of agile methodologies is the use of multidisciplinary teams that work together, side by side, throughout the process. Thus, for example, the head of marketing can give feedback on how the final product is turning out to the technician who is performing a specific task.
 
In this way, and together with the faster, earlier and more frequent deliveries, the resulting product is exactly what the market is demanding.
 
Agile teams hold daily sessions in which each member has to explain three things: what tasks he has completed, what he is going to do and, if there are any, to point out the impediments that have not allowed him to advance.
 
These meetings are called 'dailys' and they help all the team members know where each work is and they are aware of how they can collaborate so that the project can keep moving forward. The philosophy 'Agile' was born more than 10 years ago by the hand of the giants of 'software', but little by little it has been extended to other areas, including that of the Third Sector.
