Let's face it, ChMS is a sore subject for many church staff. Instead of being seen as a tool to help do effective ministry, it is often seen as a hindrance, requiring more administrative effort than benefit.

Ask any ten ChMS users if they hate their ChMS and chances are, you'll get several "yes's." No matter which ChMS product your church uses, a good percentage of your users is likely to be unsatisfied.

In this session we'll dialog about the root causes of ChMS (or any applications) dissatisfaction - and how to address the root causes:
  • Wrong fit of software
  • Implementation and Configuration
  • Training
When is it time to look to new software vs revisiting implementation, configuration, and training? What's are the best practices for GAP analysis and preparing for ChMS search, configuration, and training?

This will be an interactive session and address the needs of those who attend - not a lecture.
