In support of our clients’ missions and growth, Information Ecology offers a range of capacity building and technical management services:
- Technology assessments (show details)
Do you know that your technology infrastructure and/or information systems are no longer serving your organization well but not sure what to do about it? We will systematically examine your organization’s current condition, identify gaps and needs, and help you prioritize your next steps. An assessment can be 360º or scoped to include only a specific system.
- Strategic technology planning (show details)
When technological expertise is not part of organizational leadership, it’s a major challenge to ensure that your tools and systems can effectively support your programs. We can guide you through a planning process, driven by your mission and organizational needs, that will give you both a roadmap for your organization’s technology and a set of tools and practices for including technology in future planning.
- Project-based needs assessments (show details)
Need to improve your organization’s practices, methods, and systems for contact-tracking, information security, collaboration, project management, knowledge management, or any other information system? We can help you understand your existing work practices and desired outcomes to determine the best way to get there.
- Solution evaluation and selection (show details)
Overwhelmed by the vast array of software tools and services on offer for every possible need? We can evaluate the options available for whatever system you’re considering, and deliver a clear set of recommendations that are aligned with your organization’s work, structure, outcomes, and mission.
- Coaching (show details)
Foster professional development and build staff skills with ongoing coaching packages that increase your staff’s capacity to plan, manage, and implement technology projects and more effectively support your organizational work.
- Training and documentation (show details)
Supporting your staff with high-quality training on and documentation of your organization’s tools and systems is essential to their success. We draw on our wealth of training and documentation experience, both as staff and as consultants, to deliver clear, jargon-free, usable information to your staff at deployment and into the future.
- Project management (show details)
Large technology projects, such as website redesigns and database replacements, require intensive project management to be successful. Too often this work overwhelms organizational capacity and technical knowledge, resulting in stalled projects and poor decisions. We can manage your project expertly, providing crucial extra capacity, understanding and explaining the consequences of technical decisions on the end results, and keeping your project on-schedule and on-budget.
- Interim IT directorship (show details)
Lost a key employee and need for an interim solution while you conduct a hiring search? Growing your organization and not yet sure what the right IT management structure is? We can fill the gaps and ensure sound decisions and smooth operations over any period of missing capacity.
We are deeply knowledgeable in a variety of areas, including:
- Information security
- IT/tech staffing and budgeting
- CRM databases
- Infrastructure and networking
- Collaboration tools and practices
- Information architecture
Every project is tailored to our client’s needs, so if you don’t see the service you are looking for above, please feel free to contact us. We will do our best to find a way to meet your needs, whether with a proposal of our own or a referral to a trusted colleague.
