This online, self-paced course may be for you. Strategic Planning for Non-Profits is an introductory course for board members, Executive Directors, or key leadership groups that are contemplating embarking on a strategic planning process. The course explores:
- Why we do strategic planning;
- Involvement: Defining key individuals and groups;
- The role of moral ownership in non-profits;
- Overcoming Systems that Marginalize Communities;
- Pre-Planning: Getting buy-in and communicating the process;
- Phase I: Foundational Work
- Phase II: Plan Development
- Phase III: Implementation & Monitoring
- We’re Not Done: The importance and process of establishing implementation and monitoring plans;
- BONUS: Governance – Selecting the right system for your organization.
Each week we will cover one topic as we go from the start to finish. Examining the phases of strategic planning, we will spend time covering the components of each as well as common hurdles and how to overcome them.
Embedded in the discussion is an assessment of Change Management and the key role that managing change plays in the success of a strategic planning process.
Participants will have access to the student forum where they can ask questions, share ideas and participate in discussion with others. While the class is self-paced, there will be two sessions that participants are invited to attend as live webinars, optionally.
We hope you will take this opportunity to brush up on strategic planning and change management to take your organization’s engagement to the next level!
