Webinar and Discussion: Measure It. Turning Data into Dollars

In this webinar, measurement expert and author of the award-winning book Impact & Excellence, Sheri Chaney Jones, will share her game-changing research and strategies to help nonprofits and government leaders increase revenues, strengthen their relationships with grantors, and prove their impact to the world.  For over 17 years, Sheri has improved government agencies, nonprofits, and small businesses through the use of performance management, evaluation, and organizational behavior best practices.  Her experience and expertise has transformed measurement cultures and as a result, saved public dollars, improved outcomes, demonstrated effectiveness, and increased revenues.  By developing a measurement culture, and using data collection and analysis, Sheri has helped one client turn a $420,000 loss into a $420,000 gain. A successful project with another client resulted in a program savings of approximately $100,000 a year; and yet another client saw an annual savings of $250,000,000 in Medicaid spending. At The Ohio State University, Sheri teaches a course on creating measurement cultures as part of the Certified Public Manager’s Program. Sheri earned a M.A. in Industrial and Organizational Psychology from Central Michigan University and a B.S. with distinction in Psychology from The Ohio State University.

In this workshop, participants will:

  • Discover how to use data and outcomes to generate new grants and sources of funding
  • Develop measurement cultures and leadership skills essential for successful grant management
  • Define success measures and learn proven strategies to effectively measure impact and outcomes
  • Learn what funders are looking for and why some nonprofit programs get funded and others don’t
