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:

  1. it often is tedious and time-consuming;
  2. the issues it identifies are either obvious or not critical to the mission (or both);
  3. the actions it specifies are vague and unmeasurable;
  4. it is ignored once the plan is written (or the written plan is never quite finished);
  5. it simply adds tasks to an already over-stretched staff;
  6. it has no results visible to stakeholders;
  7. 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.
