Inside the Outside

nonprofit data Mar 08, 2023

Let's face it, when you're working with your nonprofit organization's data in your chosen fundraising CRM, there's a certain amount of inside-the-box thinking required for the system to work as designed.

However, just the right touch of outside-the-box thinking is necessary to make your data sing.

Thinking inside the box refers to using established methods and conventions to solve a problem or complete a task. This approach can be helpful because it provides structure and constraints, which can help focus the mind and prevent distractions.

On the other hand, thinking outside the box involves breaking free from these constraints and exploring new and unconventional ways of approaching a problem. This type of thinking can often lead to innovative and creative solutions.

The key is to strike a balance between these two ways of thinking. By starting with a solid understanding of the problem and using established methods, you can build a strong foundation for creative thinking. Then, by breaking free from conventional thinking and exploring new ideas, you can generate fresh insights and come up with innovative paths forward.

Ultimately, the ability to think both inside and outside the box is a valuable skill that can help you approach fundraising CRM problems and challenges from multiple angles and generate effective solutions.

When it comes to your work in your organization's fundraising CRM some inside the outside might just be a good place to spend some time.
