Yesterday evening Vancity Community Foundation and SAP co-hosted a special event to share advice about creating performance snapshots. With over 50 guests in attendance at the SAP Executive Briefing Centre, the event was a huge success. For those of you who missed out, here’s some highlights and useful recommendations that were shared yesterday evening.
So, you’ve read about performance snapshots, you’ve seen examples in the snapshots gallery, but what you really want to know is, how do I make a snapshot for my own organization?
