Panel Plenary on Innovation
“A rock star panel that eats innovation for breakfast.” I’m not sure what that actually means exactly…we’ll see.
We shouldn’t confuse innovation with iteration. What example could we use…oh, how about Apple? I hadn’t thought of that before. Change will not always be innovation. Just look at the Nano.
Lack of innovation is due to lack funders who are willing to support innovation, and the aversion to failure in the sector. That makes a lot of sense to me…we shouldn’t keep blaming non-profits for limitations imposed by funders.
NPOs need to start aligning your revenue with the service you deliver.
Is the 501c3 model dead? Maybe…the panelist who actually works in a non profit really pointed the finger at funders, and also identified barriers to scaling as a problem.
“One person cannot change the world alone. A strong team is always more powerful than a strong individual.”

Not many people have a full fledged mobile device policy. It’s more complicated than you think. What are some elements?
- Remote wipe authorization (can wipe SD card)

- Upgrade frequency
- IRS regulations on personal calls

Session posted at www.citidc.com/ntc2012. Feedback from discussion:

- Define and focus on the IT Director position as a critical element of the organizational structure
Overall it was a great conference! Had a great time.
