Nonprofit organizations are perpetually fighting todayâ€™s brush fires. Developing a strategic action process is critical to an organization not only surviving in an ever-changing environment but thriving. This workshop illustrates the power of creating a dynamic strategic action process that assesses opportunities, anticipates needs, and demonstrates progress to empower employees, volunteers, Board Members, and partner organizations for success. Participants will receive a clear blueprint of how to initiate, facilitate, and implement a strategic action process that involves all the organizationâ€™s key stakeholders and has enduring impact on its success.
Learning Objectives: At the conclusion of this workshop, participants will understand the key steps in developing a collaborative strategic action process to effectively manage their organization and learn two distinct tools to assess their organizationâ€™s opportunities and threats. Participants will learn how to create mission and vision statements to guide their organization, identify S.M.A.R.T. goals and define relevant performance measures to demonstrate their progress.
