Envisioning Your Future: Strategic Planning for the Nonprofit Agency
Acquire the tools to conduct your own strategic planning process
Many nonprofit agencies find themselves so busy reacting to change and trying to survive that there never seems to be time left to plan ahead for a better future. The purpose of this seminar is to help break that cycle. It encourages agencies to get off the treadmill of day-to-day activities, deadlines and responsibilities, and to take a look at the bigger picture: Where are we now? Where do we want to be? How do we get there? How do we measure our results?
This one-day seminar presents a strategic planning process through which any agency, regardless of size and resources, can develop a picture of what it would like to become and begin organizing to achieve this vision
- An overview of strategic planning and how it can help nonprofit agencies do a better job of managing change and planning for the future.
- A comprehensive planning process for different agency settings that is “user friendly” for agencies that do not have the luxury of spending months and months on planning.
- Participation in “hands on” sessions; apply the principles you learned in the design and development of your own agency’s strategic plan.
