How do you measure success? All too often, organizations struggle to explain their impact in a way that resonates with community, staff, and funders. Tiny Panther will work with your team to engage your staff and community in participatory research to answer the hard questions: How do you know that you’re doing a good job? How do you justify your existence to funders? How can you get the most mileage out of the data you're collecting? We demystify data analysis, facilitate illuminating conversations, and help you conduct inclusive strategic planning and assessment.
Drop us a line to discuss how we can help.
Open Data. Data Analysis. Data Driven. If the buzzwords of late-stage capitalism are getting you down, Tiny Panther offers fun hands-on workshops that demystify data and empower you to use data to question, advocate, collaborate and change the world. One-day workshops targeting non-profit and municipal leaders, library workers, and/or community rabble-rousers, can be scheduled at your workplace or in your neighborhood.
Email us for a list of upcoming dates, or to schedule your own workshop.
Tiny Panther Consulting offers coaching and strategic services to facilitate access to, and improve understanding of, data for libraries and patrons.
Contact us to talk about staff trainings or discuss a pilot project to put your library’s data services program on the map.
“Tiny Panther's process ensured that we heard the voices of our clients, colleagues, and leaders. The end result was a game-changing shift in how we will see, collect, analyze, and share data to help sustain the work of over 600 community groups across the city.”
