Leading a nonprofit or charitable organization in today’s rapidly changing environment can be challenging, as is navigating a route forward when much of the world we know is shifting and the future remains uncertain.

Strategic planning processes enable organizations to understand their current and past operating states, create a vision for the future, and determine what steps they should take to achieve that vision.

In this free interactive virtual session, we will introduce participants to the concepts of strategic planning as well as tools to use in an emergent and uncertain environment.

Topics include:

  • Tools and processes to better understand an organization’s current capacities.
  • External trends and forces that will impact organizations moving forward.
  • The process for turning a broad vision into a coherent strategy with well-defined objectives and a plan of activities.
  • The components of the cycle of strategic planning and how to adapt these within a rapidly changing environment.
  • How to develop approaches to keep strategy front and centre and building ownership throughout the organization.
