Strategic Planning: Your Roadmap to the Future

Strategic Planning: Your Roadmap to the Future

with Sarah Lange

May 31 | 11:00-12:00PM CT

They say hindsight is 20/20. But what about foresight?

Abraham Lincoln said, “The best way to predict your future is to create it.” I could not agree more!

In the current environment, it’s tempting to be pragmatic. To focus on the short-term. To make small moves. Yet the nonprofits that will be most successful over the next decade are those who engage their boards and develop an audacious plan that provides the organization with a vision for the future and a roadmap to get there. Despite the uncertainty, you can still decide: For whom and what do we stand? On which hill do we want to plant our flag? Although it seems counter-intuitive, there is no better time to plan your future; to establish new lines of flight. To identify and tackle what matters most.

In this workshop, I’ll teach you a new approach to strategic planning that will enable you to set your sights on an exciting future, while being able to adapt to changing circumstances.

You’ll learn:

1. The benefits of combining strategic and adaptive planning
2. The three-phase process to planning
3. How to engage various stakeholders in the process

Don’t let circumstances dictate the future of your organization. The work you’re doing is too important to leave things to chance!
