Strategic Planning That Sticks: Content and Process for Plans You'll Use

  • “We put in a huge effort on planning two years ago but haven’t looked at the plan since,”
  • “No one knows what the future will bring. There’s no way to plan.”
  • “We’re too busy to write a plan. We’re just volunteers.”

The Board Doctor has heard it all. So many of us have been involved in planning processes that just didn’t last. They maybe brought clarity for a short time but certainly didn’t have any long-term effect. We will discuss the pros and cons of strategic planning for your organization, review the basic elements of a good plan, and discuss ways to ensure the plan is useful as a guide to decision-making for at least a few year. We’ll also talk about alternatives to strategic planning and discover options that may better suit your board of directors.

Presenter: Cathy Allen is a BoardSource-certified nonprofit governance consultant with a passion for helping volunteer boards of directors understand and embrace their unique role, and organize their work for maximum effectiveness and minimum headache. Cathy is pleased to be making these workshops available virtually and at no cost.
