Strategic Planning Made Easy

How to Bring Your Board Together
and Align Your Organization’s Vision
with its Policies, Procedures and Programs

What does your organization stand for? What makes it distinct? What’s your vision for where you would you like your nonprofit to be in three years? How do you know what to do next? Without clear organizational goals, how do you evaluate staff performance?

Many nonprofits spend extortionate amounts of time and resources developing a thick, dense Strategic Plan that is so overwhelming all it does is collect dust on a back shelf in the Executive Director’s office. CSL will show you how Strategic Planning can be both much deeper and much simpler. CSL will share a model with you for how your board and executive staff can create a high-quality Strategic Plan in a relatively short time.

You will learn how to create a Strategic Plan that is a living, breathing document that your organization can amend quarterly so it retains its relevance to the evolving challenges, budgetary constraints, client needs and priorities of your organization. By the end of this session, you will have a simple, easy-to-use model that will enable you to continuously align your organization’s programs and everyday processes with its mission, vision and core values.
