TechNow 2008 Adds B–Three Solutions as Sponsor
October 10, 2008
B–Three Solutions has announced plans to participate in TechNow 2008, which will take place on October 30, 2008. The event will be held at the Regional Learning Alliance in Cranberry Township.
Organized by the Bayer Center for Nonprofit Management — a unit of Robert Morris University — TechNow is an annual event that is unique in the Pittsburgh region. It is a day–long conference devoted to new and important trends and resources in technology for nonprofit organizations.
B–Three Solutions assists medium–to–large organizations — businesses, local governments, and nonprofits — to align their business goals, processes, and technology. B–Three consultants propose and implement solutions that are consistent with business logic and justified by cost–effectiveness.
Michael Walton, President of B–Three Solutions, explained: “This approach has been proven valid for our private–sector clients. We believe that it is every bit as valid for nonprofit organizations.”
In the nonprofit world:
• Project budgets are fixed. There are no additional funds available to cover cost overruns or change orders.
• Project timelines are fixed. A high–level version of the project schedule, including milestone–related progress reports, may be built into the grant which funded the project. The project schedule cannot be allowed to slip, because these reporting commitments to funding organizations must be kept.
Since the founding of the company, the majority of B–Three’s contracts for project work have specified fixed fees and fixed timelines. B–Three has clearly established that its team has the project management skills and experience necessary to meet the special requirements of project work in the nonprofit world.
In addition to participating in TechNow 2008 as an exhibitor, B–Three is helping to support the conference by sponsoring the luncheon that will be attended by all participants. Anyone interested in more information about this annual event should visit the TechNow 2008 website.
