Starting a Strategic Planning process can strike fear in the minds of Executive Directors and board members alike – even in most established nonprofits. Day-long retreats, subsequent follow-up meetings, sub-committees, oversight, reporting, and then having to do it all over again in a few years. Many nonprofits experience putting a lot of work into a plan for it to sit on a shelf and only be reviewed 5 years later.
Let’s change the narrative around strategic planning.
In this workshop, we will break down Strategic Planning into its most basic form. The format allows new nonprofits to plan in the short term and established nonprofits to build a more robust strategic planning process.
For this workshop to be beneficial two representatives from nonprofits should be present. There will be breakout times to converse with partners, focusing solely on their nonprofit and then reflecting with the rest of the participants.
