ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
Planning is a tool used to guide organizations through the maze of infinite possibilities and focus on what's important to survival and sustainability: How you spend your time, how you spend your money, how you create value. Planning helps organizations do a better job. This workshop will prepare you to strategically and systematically use planning to build commitment among your stakeholders, choose priorities, respond to your operating environment, and ultimately, improve your organization's focus.
The workshop includes six sections:
- Mission analysis
- Organizational and stakeholder analysis
- SWOT analysis
- Identifying strategic issues
- Life cycle positioning and impact on planning
- Strategic cycle
Pre-assigned homework: Every attendee is asked to research and bring a hard copy of their organization's articles of incorporation, bylaws, mission and vision (if your group has them).
Staff and board members of nonprofit organizations are encouraged to attend.
