Week two of our discussion on the principles.
This weeks principle is: We, as nonprofit-focused technology professionals, pledge to:
Appreciate and Respect an Organization’s Character and Adapt Our Approaches Appropriately
One could argue that this is more applicable to consultants, but I think it has relevance for nonprofit staff and vendors. Otherwise this seems pretty straightforward.
Any concerns or issues with this one?
I also encourage everyone to share "What this means to me" for inclusion in the master "What these Mean to Us" document that will accompany the principles.
When commenting please remember:
is just a baseline – version 1.0. There will likely be future editions,
so this doesn’t need to be perfect for all time, just a solid start.
principles need to be applicable to all nonprofit technology
professionals, including nonprofit staff, consultants, technology
support organizations, vendors, and volunteers.
The principles need to be applicable across areas of focus, US geographic region, specialty, services and tools.
- Further details will be articulated by the community in “What These Mean to Me” documents posted in the library. So these need not incorporate all the details they imply.
