Since 2004, Leda has guided this San Francisco-based foundation through several communications initiatives, including two website redesigns and a CRM implementation. In addition, Leda has managed the implementation, rollout, and change management strategy for several organization-wide technology initiatives, including a new grants management system built on Salesforce.com.
Rockwood Leadership Institute
Since 2008, Leda has partnered with Rockwood on several communications and technology initiatives. These include planning, resourcing, project management, staffing, and change management for Rockwood’s communications infrastructure, and a full-scale Salesforce.com implementation to manage all of Rockwood’s key business processes.
Story of Stuff Project
Since 2009, worked with the Story of Stuff Project to scale their communications infrastructure, so they can more effectively manage their rapidly growing base of supporters, collaborators, and partners. Also provided organizational development consulting, including retreat design and facilitation.
Interaction Institute for Social Change
Guided IISC through a comprehensive Technology Systems Redesign. This 6-month process included a detailed assessment of business processes and supporting technology infrastructure, a complete set of technology recommendations, a multi-year implementation and rollout plan, RFP development and vendor vetting, and change management guidance (Sept 2009-March 2010).
American Association for Justice
Guided this DC-based national association through a complete redesign and execution of their online and interactive strategy. This included establishing a new Online department, streamlining all their internal systems and processes, and building a network of ongoing technology partners (Sept 2007–Oct 2008).
Green for All
Worked with this then start-up nonprofit to develop a strategic technology plan, manage the development of their online infrastructure, and cultivate a network of providers to support their ongoing work (Sept 2007-April 2008).
In May of 2006, ScoutSeven initiated this 2-year project to shed some light on the sector-wide inadequacies of the nonprofit technology sector. Our report, Online Technology for Social Change: From Struggle to Strategy, was the first-ever reality check on the state of the nonprofit technology sector(May 2006–Jan 2009).
League of Young Voters
During their first election cycle, we worked with the League to develop a strategic technology plan, execute their online voter guides, and manage the organizational kinks of a start-up nonprofit. If there’s one organization we think can save the world, it’s this one. If you’re not supporting them already, start now.
In 2004, Leda Dederich spent much of the year working and researching in Israel and the occupied territories.
