Why You Should Ditch the Way You’ve Been Doing Strategic Plans (...and what you should do to succeed instead)
With the rise of the internet and the impact of big data, the world has changed. Unfortunately, most nonprofits can’t move or adapt at a pace that is the new normal and the standard model for strategic planning hasn’t been updated to meet the demands of this new world. It’s time to throw out your strategic plan and embrace a better way. In this workshop you’ll learn the core principles for thriving in the digital age and a new way of setting goals that connects your daily activities to your larger mission. Concepts birthed by the shapers of the internet such as agile principles, working in sprints, iterative project development, and more should inform how you operate, empower your team to become a team of leaders, and help you pivot into the future.
