Strategic Plans: Developing and Implementing
Strategic plans are a critical tool in guiding an organization’s planning, evaluation, service delivery and communication activities. Having a clearly articulated strategic plan ensures everyone knows and is focused on the mission, understands the established goals, and knows their role in helping the organization get where it wants to go. Getting (and keeping) key players engaged in the planning process can be challenging. Depending on the nonprofit’s leadership, values, culture, complexity and size, the process for identifying top priorities and developing an actionable plan can easily become a burdensome and ineffective exercise.
Please join Lynn Ivey, nonprofit consultant, as she explores ways to design, develop and implement a strategic planning process that prepares your organization for both the present and the future. Learn key strategies for ensuring your nonprofit engages in ongoing and intentional planning, incorporates the right information into the plan, and identifies clearly defined goals, objectives and outcomes. Effective organizational planning defines your direction, articulates your vision, and provides you with a road map to a successful future.
