Setting Your Organizational Strategy

Strategic planning is about the answering two questions: what is the future state we want to get to, and what is the pathway to get there?  The methodologies to explore these questions are many, a “plan” doesn’t have to be an epic tome, and condensed timeframes reflect a rapidly changing operating environment.  If you’re looking for some ideas about different ways you could approach setting your organization’s strategy, this is your session.  If you envision not only a crisp, clear plan for your future but also an inclusive planning process that gets everyone’s ideas on the table and creates a sense of ownership throughout your organization – this is definitely your session.  The presenter will offer Do-it-Yourself tools and is eager to hear your ideas.  See you there!

Note that this training is designed for larger nonprofits, though everyone is welcome to participate.
