A couple of weeks ago, I wrote on my LinkedIn about unashamedly using tools like ChatGPT to help out with tasks.
It’s something that I’ve been thinking of a lot lately, if I’m honest. In the IT world–and especially in the nonprofit IT world, the phrase “doing more with less” has become a mantra, as we are all constantly challenged to achieve greater outcomes with limited resources (whether real or artificial).
Seeing tools like ChatGPT come around, and the attendant press that’s come with it, makes me feel like we’re standing at the precipice of a major paradigm shift. These tools aren’t limiting us; rather, they can make us do more. In other words, we can do more with more.
By leveraging these tools, perhaps IT practitioners (nonprofit or otherwise) can focus on the creative aspects of our work, leaving the machines to do the mundane. And let’s be honest: Computers love mundane tasks.
So over the next few weeks, I’ll be writing some thoughts on this matter. Join me, won’t you, as we do more…with more?
