The ability to plan with accuracy and foresight is the cornerstone of success. Strategic planning is important at all levels of any organization, and it’s a team process. In this hands-on class, you’ll examine the unique role that tribal culture plays in the planning process. Learn what tools you can use to analyze your organization and its needs and how to develop a strategic plan.

During this class, you’ll learn how to conduct a strategic planning session, how to prepare for the session and steps to take after the session. As you discover ways to establish a direction for your organization, you’ll also understand how to evaluate the plan’s success and make necessary modifications.

We recommend that you purchase the book, "Strategic Planning for Nonprofit Organizations" to compliment your learning experience.
