Some are tempted to think that effectiveness and efficiency are conflicting goals, that you can’t capitalize both at the same time. However, I believe that is a faulty paradigm that leads to bad decisions.
Nonprofits want to be effective, and they need to be efficient. Doing both ensure the greater likelihood that resources will continue to come their way. Effectiveness means doing the right thing. Efficiency means doing things right. Using a board to conduct electricity, while possible, is not the right thing to do, nor is it doing things right. Get both of those things in proper alignment and the nonprofits expiration date gets pushed out, the shelf life increases, death is held off for a little while longer.
Take Away: Wet board's conduct electricity, but copper wires do it better.
