Strategic plans and organizational budgets are living documents. While nonprofits cannot predict the future, they can begin to anticipate how they would adjust to a variety of major and minor shifts in their original plans and budgets so that they are equipped to make difficult, complex decisions as crises or opportunities arise in the months ahead. Are we in a healthy place to increase our staff or expand our programming? Are we prepared and resourced enough to navigate a severe weather event? How can we minimize risk if we lose revenue or a major grant or donation? Can we afford to offer more benefits to staff? Building potential scenarios and back up plans can give leaders, their staff, boards, and funders the confidence they need to answer these kinds of questions as they maintain operations and continue to deliver on programs.
The workshop will specifically address the following topics:
- principles to guide successful scenario planning processes;
- identifying critical questions and decision points for your nonprofit; and
- how to use available tools to undertake scenario planning.
The workshop will be in person on Wednesday, October 11th, from 9:00am to 12:00pm. It is free, but registration is required. All registrants will be notified of the location after their registration is complete. Click here to register. Seating is limited.
