In a landscape of declining budgets and increasingly need, sometimes small innovations can have a big impact. Process improvement and workflow mapping are ways to identify existing inefficiencies or missed opportunities, and solve issues in innovative and holistic ways. From internal processes to service delivery to volunteer management, this webinar will highlight approaches and techniques to help identify, automate and simplify routine activities and reduce complexity. We will explore three examples from the community and hear an overview of how process mapping can improve organizational performance and outcomes.

Next Generation Advocacy and Advocate Training Tools: This webinar will focus on new approaches to the design and delivery of substantive practice resources and tools for advocates. Examples will include “expert” tools that aid legal decision-making and new training models. 

In this video our presentors will focus on two projects, an Online Classroom and Olmsteadrights.org and answer a variety of questions.
 
Online Classroom is, for lack of a better term, an online classroom, that is dedicated to walking people through some complicated legal processes.
Olmsteadrights focuses on sharing stories and providing tools to people to help them become better advocates for those with disabilities.
