We do not have a dedicated IT/tech person in our organization. How can we embark on this journey without a dedicated resource?
We work with organization without a dedicated IT person every day. If they can do it, you can do it too! Select the staff member with the most tech skills (often a social media coordinator), who is curious to learn. We will guide and train them. Easy.
