Effective Strategic Planning Part 2: Plan Development & Implementation Edit Title
Wed, Jul 29, 2015 at 3pm EDT / 12pm PDT Edit Date
Strategic planning has a dicey reputation for any number of reasons:
- it often is tedious and time-consuming;
- the issues it identifies are either obvious or not critical to the mission (or both);
- the actions it specifies are vague and unmeasurable;
- it is ignored once the plan is written (or the written plan is never quite finished);
- it simply adds tasks to an already over-stretched staff;
- it has no results visible to stakeholders;
- it does not advance your mission.
These problems are not inherent to strategic planning; they are signs that it has been done badly. This webinar will look at how a nonprofit can infuse its mission into the daily activity of staff and board through a straightforward, rigorous, and even morale-building process. It will offer both a structure and tools for planning.

As we are in the beginning stages of our strategic planning process, this webinar was extremely helpful.
Good explanations of goals, objectives, action plans.

As always, Sam was thorough but concise. It's helpful to divide this into three parts so we can cover each segment and process it before moving ahead

Very clear framework for developing, documenting and communication actions that will make the strategies real.

Really great -- full of actionable suggestions, broken down by the thought process necessary to go from Mission to a detailed Strategic Plan.

Extremely valuable information - have been involved in stratgic planning many times - but Sam added a dimension to my understanding that takes it from a feel good excercise that often a) results in micro managed staff duties or b) acts as a vague guide or c) makes everyone feel inadequate at year end or) let's the board off the hook in terms of goverance etc. etc. to a supportive, comprehensive tool for everyone. It can become a source of generative discussion, staff recognition, and clarity for volutneers and community. Just for starters...Maybe it was just the moment but I feel more engergized about getting my organizationn on this path than I ever have. Can't wait for the dash board!
