How to Conduct a Feasibility Study for Purposeful Program Design - January 4, 2023

In this webinar, we will put pen to paper and go through the questions that need to be asked before you launch a program to meet community needs. We will cover how to identify the questions, collect data, engage stakeholders, and draw conclusions through a feasibility study.
Behind every impact story is a really great survey. Surveys do not have to be complicated or long to be powerful and useful for your organization. Making sure that you are asking precisely the right questions to support the story you are trying to tell and creatively folding survey administration into your workflow is really key. This workshop will highlight the secret to designing great surveys to help support your organization in its journey to share its story.
