PRO 240 | People First: Nonprofit Service Delivery

What does “good customer service” look like in your program? What formal policies and procedures are in place to ensure safe, effective operations? How do you recognize and replicate successes, while identifying, mitigating, and preventing challenges?
 
Regardless of your program’s focus area within the broader nonprofit sector, by legal definition your ultimate goal is public good. We serve people, and as such we hold ourselves to high standards. How well those standards are documented and disseminated, however, is often another matter. In this course you will address the above questions, considering how to keep the running of your program focused on (and, sometimes, out of the way of) serving your clients.

  • Using tools for workplace collaboration

  • Identify opportunities for implementing, revising, or replacing processes and systems, whether existing or absent, toward greater program effectiveness.
