In 1965, Gordon Moore, an Intel co-founder, verbalized his now famous “Moore’s Law” in a magazine interview. At its most simple, Moore’s Law states that computer chip performance will double every two years. If we apply this thinking more broadly to the world at large, we’ve seen a very rapid change in the evolution of technology in the last 10 years. Think about this: Less than 10 years ago, Facebook didn’t exist, Twitter didn’t exist and the iPhone didn’t exist.
The introduction and widespread adoption of all these technologies into the consumer marketplace, along with economic and regulatory uncertainty, and a shifting demographic have created an imperfect storm in the nonprofit sector that I’ve written about recently. So, where do we go from here? And how do we address the challenges while identifying and embracing the opportunities? What can we expect in 2013?
I’ve identified four key trends in the video above that I believe will have the greatest impact on the nonprofit sector this year based on my own observations and conversations with leaders in the nonprofit sector, as well as research that Blackbaud, the company I lead, has conducted.
