Part 1: Getting Started with Strategic Planning

Is strategic planning on your radar? Do you need to clarify the strategic direction of your organization and the strategies that will be used to achieve your vision while also ensuring organizational health and sustainability? If you answered yes, join this three-part webinar series that will set you on the path to developing a plan that does not sit on a shelf collecting dust! Strategic planning aligns your people and resources around a plan to achieve your mission.

This session will introduce the what and why of strategic planning as well as lay the groundwork for the six phases of planning. We will explore the first two phases of the planning process, Prepare and Listen. After completing this session, you will understand the need for strategic planning, be able to articulate what you hope planning will accomplish for your organization, and be equipped with the tools to assess your organization’s readiness to engage in a strategic planning process. You will also be able to identify key planning questions and stakeholders for your planning process.

The three sessions meet 6:00-7:30 p.m. on three consecutive Wednesdays.  Kim Rakow Bernier, MPA, is the presenter for each session. The series is hosted by the Nonprofit Association of Washington (NAWA).
