In today’s dynamic environment, nonprofit business models are quickly evolving and, nonprofit leaders are challenged to make faster, smarter, strategic decisions in the quest for sustainability. This comprehensive session offers nonprofit executives and board members a simple yet powerful tool for analyzing and strengthening their business models.

Please join Steve Strang, consultant with Spectrum Nonprofit Services, for interactive training that introduces participants to the Matrix Map, an engaging, visual tool that turns an organization’s business model into a single, compelling image that represents the mission impact and financial viability of the organization. Beyond just a picture though, the Matrix Map offers strategic imperatives for board and staff to frame choices and make strategic adjustments to strengthen your model. At the conclusion, participants will walk away with a tool they can use to engage staff and board in the pursuit of sustainability.


Just a sampling of what this webinar will cover:

  • Understand the concepts of sustainability, nature of nonprofit business models and how their activities work together to create a sustainable organization.
  • Be familiar with and able to prepare the Matrix Map – a visual tool for depicting an organization’s business model.
  • Be able to analyze their business model and articulate the strategic imperatives to strengthen it based on the Matrix Map.
