Technology Use by Nonprofits
The Lehman Reports series of research studies provide information and insight on the types of technology products and services currently used by nonprofits to advance their mission, satisfaction with these products and services, and plans to adopt new technology products and services in the future. This information helps associations and nonprofits make more informed purchase decisions, and helps providers better align their product and marketing.
The Lehman Reports are conducted and published by Lehman Associates a strategy consulting and research firm founded by Tom Lehman in 1992. In our consulting practice, we have worked with dozens of non-profit organizations to help them align business and strategic goals and their technology strategy plan.
