All too often planning processes generate long, tactical, wish lists for each of the programs or services a nonprofit provides instead of providing a strategic roadmap based on tough decisions. How can you ensure the latter happens vs. the former even before you begin your strategic planning process? In this workshop we will talk through how you scope the right questions for your plan to answer, how you deal with human-centric problems that cross the different program silos, and how you keep the planning process grounded and on track along the way. We will cover the benefits of engaging a diverse set of stakeholders and how you go about prioritizing to generate momentum. Whether you are new to strategic planning process or have bruises and scars to show for previous efforts, this workshop will lay the groundwork for an effective process that becomes the foundation for driving results.
This workshop is being presented in collaboration with the Association of Nonprofit Specialists, with special thanks to their sponsor: Nonprofit Solutions Network.
- Decide on the best methodologies for you to get a view of reality
- Know your “why”, “what”, and “who” (or at least a draft thereof) prior to starting
- Plan for the time and resources needed to gather and synthesize data
- Emotional alignment increases odds of success (it’s not just a softball!)
This workshop will be presented by Robin Yates, founder of Yates Advisory LLC.
