Community-centered strategic planning
NTEN courses run for one week and are offered twice a year.
Learn various ways to engage communities meaningfully throughout your strategic planning process.
Learn how goals and strategies can be developed for and by the community.
Learn how centering communities in strategic planning should be a part of implementation, monitoring, and evaluation.
Strategic planning remains one of the most important management tools used by successful organizations. Unfortunately, at best, many nonprofits only include communities in limited parts of their strategic planning. At worst, communities are often completely left out from the planning process. It’s time to rethink strategic planning.
During this interactive course, you’ll learn about the parts of a robust strategic planning process and discuss ways you can — and should — meaningfully center communities in each step.
