Strategic Planning for Nonprofits

September 19, 2019 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm

Thursday, September 19, 2019 9:30 AM–12:30 PM  Squirrel Hill

In today’s rapidly changing environment, nonprofit organizations need to be keenly aware of how changes in funding priorities, customer/client needs and preferences, technology, marketing, and resource availability affect their capacity to deal proactively with change, successfully meet their mission, and survive beyond sustainability.  Being aware of these changes is not even enough.  Nonprofits need to be equipped to make the difficult changes necessary to succeed and thrive!  In order to achieve your desired organizational and community impact, there must be an implementable plan in place to address change head-on.  Strategic planning helps you figure out where you are now, where you want to go, what is standing in your way, what is there to support you on your way, and what you need to get there.  This session will address the steps of strategic planning, who should be involved, and what to do with the plan once it is developed.

Learning objectives:

Explore the “nuts and bolts” of strategic planning in a nonprofit organizational context.
Identify how to use common resources in new, creative, and innovative ways.
Experience real-life strategic planning activities, tools, and processes in an interactive and fun way.
Our speaker will be Bruce E. Decker, founder and owner of Collective Impact, LLC, a capacity-building consulting firm with a focus on helping organizations and communities achieve their mission, realize their vision, and thrive!  Since 2001, Collective Impact has worked with a broad range of clients from a variety of disciplines in numerous states.  Bruce has demonstrated expertise in organizational and community capacity building, system analysis and improvement, family support principles and practices, service coordination and integration, and cross-system networking and collaboration.  Bruce received his MA in Organizational Communication and Leadership Studies, and a BA in Marketing Education and Diversified Cooperative Training with a focus on Entrepreneurship.
