Agile can work for fundraising. It obviously works for Wikimedia, who has been using Agile to help their fundraising effort.
During the process, they defined and prioritized the high-level requirements for this year’s engineering efforts, identified pain points in our development process, and strategized solutions to enable the team to quickly respond to the constantly changing needs of the fundraiser at a sustainable pace.
Consider the following ideas when managing fundraising efforts:
- Creating a fully prioritized list of fundraising activities or features needed to do.
- Developing story cards for each activity.
- Create a fundraiser board to visualize work flow (like kanban).
- Get immediate feedback and commitment to completion on needed tasks.
