Strategic Management Series

Most nonprofit leaders want to make wise decisions, but they sometimes are at a loss for where to begin. This is where strategic management comes into play –focused administration of an organization’s resources to achieve primary goals and objectives. Strategic management entails evaluating business goals, objectives, and plans in light of your nonprofit focus on effectiveness and efficiency.

CNE’s Strategic Management Series has been designed specifically for nonprofit leaders with strategic leadership responsibilities in their organization. Participants will be walked through the process of organizational analysis, determining goals, strategies, and initiatives, and nonprofit business models.

Upon completion of the course, participants will have a full understanding of what good strategy is and how it matters in building successful organizations. Participants will also leave with a peer and instructor reviewed draft of a strategic plan along with next steps for implementation within their organization.

Elements discussed as part of the Strategic Plan include:

1. Goals, Strategies, Implementation Details
2. Fund Development Plan
3. Marketing Plan
4. Resource Plan
5. Governance
6. 3-Year Business Plan
