It’s just you, maybe a few others, and you are doing great work that’s helping your community improve. You might be thinking that you don’t need a strategic plan or that a strategic plan is too costly or complicated. It shouldn’t be that way!
In this session, we’ll break down a proven process that works for small nonprofits (even those with all volunteers or just one employee!). We’ll show you the exact steps to take to lead your organization through the process so that you can feel confident in your strategy and ultimately make the world a better place.
After this session, you’ll be able to:
1. Quickly and easily develop a strategic planning process
2. Provide your stakeholders with a fast (and free) survey that will help you see the bigger picture
3. Use the strategic framework from Fortune 500 companies and apply them directly to your work
4. Create a strategy that you, your board, and your other stakeholders can use every single day to improve your work
