Strategic Planning

Strategic planning is a disciplined process to position an organization to achieve results aligned with its fundamental long-term purpose. The purpose of strategic planning is to clearly define the mission of the organization, and to establish realistic goals and objectives consistent with that mission in a defined time frame and within the organization's capacity for implementation. Nonprofit Solutions consultants can help nonprofit organizations design and implement a planning process by working with them to determine who should be included, what issues should be addressed, and what information to collect to ensure sound decision making. The role of a consultant is not to develop the strategic plan, but to act as advisor and facilitator to assist those who will actually develop the plan. A consultant will bring to the process objectivity, organizational skills, and the ability to keep the planning process moving with effective facilitation and to stimulate thinking in new directions.
