STRATEGIC PLANNING WORKSHOP with Jennifer Testa
“She led the strategic plan process for TCF which was so valuable that we wanted other nonprofit organizations to benefit from her leadership in this area. Strategic Planning is something that we’re asked about a lot and we are delighted be bring Jennifer to lead this workshop on strategic planning.” – Revlan Hill, Executive Director of The Community Foundation
Part 1: Strategic Planning 101 – October 20th, 9a-12p
Strategic planning is an integral part of any non-profit, ensuring that resources are focused on those activities that best support the organization’s purpose. Creating a strategic plan, however, can be challenging – especially if your knowledge and experience is limited. During Part I of this workshop, we will discuss the foundational components of an effective strategic plan – mission, vision and value statements – as well as the process for creating purposeful goals and objectives. To end our time together, you will begin applying your new knowledge by creating your own personal mission statement.
Part 2: Strategic Planning 102 – November 3rd, 9a-12p
Developing a strategic plan can be time-consuming, but the benefits are immeasurable. During this session, we will use a randomly drawn, attending nonprofit to practice creating a mission, vision and value statement. We will also participate in a traditional brainstorming session as we develop both short-term and long-term strategic goals for the chosen organization. ALL organizations will walk away with a replicable process for a strategic plan that you can begin with your own organization the moment you step back into your office.
NOTE: An organization will be randomly chosen to be the prime example for Part 2. This organization will leave Part 2 with specific takeaways. The organization will be notified before the session with enough time to prepare. Jennifer will extend one-on-one attention to the chosen organization during the session as well.
Requirements: Organizations may attend Part 1 on October 20th and not Part 2 on November 3rd. Organizations can NOT attend Part 2 without attending Part 1. Attendance to Part 1 is a prerequisite for Part 2.
