Part 1: Strategic Planning The Beginning - Creating a Process that Produces Results Description: Did you know that businesses can DOUBLE their chances for success simply by creating a current and relevant strategic plan to guide growth? This workshop is perfect for business leaders seeking to begin a planning process that engages the entire team and produces a realistic action-focused plan. More than 70% of nonprofits that have a written plan admit that the document is sitting on a shelf collecting dust and we want to make sure yours is not one of them! Funding for Good’s experts will break down the 10 things every organization should know before drafting the final document. Participants will walk away with a greater understanding of different approaches to the process, professional tips on what works and what does not, and an arsenal of strategies to generate buy in from your board, staff, and stakeholders. Part 2: Strategic Planning - What Could and Should be In the Final Written Document Are you ready to draft a written strategic plan but wonder “How do we narrow down all these ideas into one document?” This workshop helps business leaders understand the three questions every well crafted strategic plan should answer. Funding for Good’s experts will highlight essential components of a written strategic plan and share strategies to ensure that your end product is clear, concise, and compelling. We will explain how to organize the content in a way that that educates and inspires readers. Participants will learn how a well-designed “strategic planning retreat” contributes to a plan that captures the shared vision of your collective group without ignoring the innovative ideas of individual team members. This workshop is perfect for leaders seeking a wealth of tips, tools, and templates to convert strategic planning conversations and content into one LIVE written plan.
