Strategic Planning is a tool to articulate goals and objectives that will lead to the accomplishment of the mission of the organization. This course will provide the “how to” of strategic planning for Board, staff and volunteers of arts and culture organizations. Through the strategic planning process, you will closely examine your organization’s mission, operations, human resources (Board, staff and volunteers), budget, program effectiveness, community needs, and overall nonprofit compliance. Establishing the short and long-range goals for your organization, will help you determine where to allocate resources to accomplish your goals.
Learn the joys of strategic planning including:
- How to engage your Board, staff and volunteers in the process
- Create a vision statement
- Collect and analyze data from your key stakeholders
- Identify organizational goals and objectives
- Write and effectively implement a strategic plan
