AICPA: Positioning IT for Success Through Effective Strategic IT Planning




As the title suggests, this is a timely and important presentation designed to help nonprofit organizations implement technology that are actually solutions rather than costly, time-consuming, head-smacking albatrosses that so often plague our industry.

Presented by Doug Barker, president, and David Price, principal, we think you’ll find this presentation an invaluable resource for any existing or future technology planning or implementation process.


AICPA: Real-Life Lessons: How to Avoid Common and Costly Mistakes When Implementing Technology




It is no secret that even for the most sophisticated organization, IT can seem like a foreign language. In this presentation, Barker & Scott President Doug Barker and Principal David Price offer their insights into strategically planning for any IT engagement.

Specifically, we believe – and showcase here – why the thinking and planning that goes into IT investments is as important as the technology itself.
