Class description: As our world and communities change, we are called to adapt and reflect the changing landscape while staying true to our organization’s core purpose.  Strategic planning creates the space for visioning that is often hard to find in the day-to-day hustle. This class will examine the parts of a strategic plan, including the vision and mission statement, values, and goals that will guide the organization into the future. You will:

  • Explore strategic decision-making tools you can use to analyze your respective nonprofit and plot a course for your organization’s future.
  • Learn about SWOT Analysis, BCG Matrix, the Sustainability Matrix, and the Strategy Canvas.
  • Have the opportunity to work in small groups and apply the tools you learn, evaluate an organization, and understand the process of constructing a Sustainable Strategic Plan
