5 Good Ideas
What is 5 Good Ideas Make Them Great?
5 Good Ideas is a peer learning and idea sharing workshop to help facilitate the dialogue among nonprofit leaders about ideas that have worked and ideas to build on that your nonprofit can implement for greater impact. Increase your knowledge and pick up an idea that might help you do your work more efficiently and more effectively. The ideas presented will be ones you can adopt as soon as you leave.
How does it work?
A nonprofit or industry leader initiates a discussion of five ideas that have enhanced how an organization achieves its mission. By sharing lessons learned in their own work, keys to success and strategies that have produced clear results for their efforts, you can quickly build your skill set and identify new ways of doing business. We ask you to transform these ideas into practice. Up to two people from each organization are invited to participate and brainstorm ways to apply what you’ve learned into your own organization.
A required component for participating is completing a follow-up survey. Three weeks following the workshop, all participants will be asked to respond to an online survey and share consideration of at least one of the new ideas. The purpose of the survey is to determine how many ideas were practically applied. This is one way the BCBSNC Foundation will measure the impact its having on increasing the capacity of nonprofit organizations through sharing what’s worked and dissemination of best practices.
