We asked and boy did we get an earful!
In February we asked you to participate in a short 4 question survey so we could better understand the needs of the grant management community.
Your responses confirmed the trend we are seeing across the training industry. The most pressing need is for more grant management tools, not just more grant training.
It makes sense: You need more useful resources so managing your job in this reduced staff, reduced budget world won’t be so stressful.
Here are the 3 Surprising Reasons for More Grant Management Tools:
Reason #1: The main challenge is the grant environment…
60% of respondents identified process issues and other people’s lack of knowledge as the biggest challenges they face as grant professionals
Reason #2: I want to know what effective grant management looks like…
83% of respondents want Editable Presentations of Grant Management Process Flows and Best Practices so they can improve communication with others in the organization and have more efficient and effective grant management methods
Reason #3: I need better tools to be a better grant manager…
80% of respondents asked for help with Indirect Cost Rate Proposal Preparation so they can feel confident about developing this necessary part of a grant proposal
We are taking your feedback to heart and will work hard this year to offer more ways to make your grant management tasks less painful and more efficient-so you can spend more time on the fun stuff-like making your programs successful!
Stay tuned for future updates…
