Nonprofit Skills™: Strategic Planning for Board Members


This course, aimed at nonprofit board members, is designed to help them apply basic strategic-planning skills to their nonprofit organizations. Self-paced and highly interactive, the course covers the six stages of the formal strategic planning process — Preparation; Mission and Vision; Strategic Assessment; Strategy Formulation; Implementation; and Evaluation — as well as approaches for rapidly developing strategies for situations not anticipated by the strategic plan. It includes three case studies that allow learners to apply what they have learned to real-world situations and it allows learners to download materials that they can use to develop strategies for their own organizations.
