November 22, 2019 @ 9:30 am - 3:30 pm

Facilitated by Daren Okafo, Manager – Learning Programs – CSCNS, the Strategic Planning Workshop seeks to teach boards the key elements of Strategic Planning.

Building your organizations’ capacity to manage effective Strategic Planning can be a crucial element in adapting to sectoral and organizational change, and proactively organize your work in a purposeful way. 

This hands-on workshop will provide a grounded overview of the Strategic Planning process, and provide some practical guidance on thinking through the various stages, from understanding the broader nonprofit strategic context, comprehending your own situational context (SWOT, SOAR, etc.), setting achievable priorities, and building efficient and broadly agreeable action and operational plans within your organization.
