TITLE: Fundamentals-Planning for Change
Change is constant. Successful nonprofits must evolve, respond, and adapt to changing community needs and a rapidly changing world while maintaining strategic focus. Responsive and adaptive nonprofits approach planning as an ongoing, dynamic process driven by evaluation and data and inclusive of a wide variety of community perspectives. During this interactive session, you will gain an understanding of organizational change, practice using key tools for participatory planning and strategic decision-making, learn how to gather and incorporate community data to inform planning, and build skills to create the plans that every nonprofit needs to have in place to succeed. You will leave with an outline of next steps to become more adaptable and strategic in your organization’s work. This course is appropriate for representatives from organizations of any size or developmental stage, whether you are new or experienced in the nonprofit field. We encourage multiple representatives from an organization to attend together.
