Thank you Brendan for sharing and for your comments! I agree about nonprofits having a way to not loose a process when they loose staff. I am always preaching about the "rule of three" to never have just one person that know how to "X", i.e., do a segmented email blast, pull out a lapsed donor list, etc. Great points!

Right on Steve! Documenting use and needs is a very smart thing to do - how many times have we heard "we can't do that" when the software can, in fact, do that! Great point, thanks!

Thank you for your comment Michael. I agree with you and hope to get the np tech consultants to agree to these and hopefully adhere to them. Your points make sense for consulting firms or those with subcontractors. Most people I know try to stick to their principles, but in a tough economy you can't eat your principles :). I think transparency and consistency are definitely important. I hope you'll join the discussion at NTC in March! Best, John

Thank you for your comments Ivan! I will be creating a document that expands on these in detail and will add your thoughts. I think it is important to keep these top level items short and limit them to 10, but your point will be included in the details, as I think that applies to several of the main items. #1 is really a bit tongue in cheek, based on the Hippocratic oath doctors take (first do no harm) but I have seen inexperienced people unintentionally mess up hardware! Always good to start with the basics I think :).
