Do You Have the Muscle to Plan Effectively and Strategically?

In uncertain times, it's important to plan for contingencies. But first, it's critical to develop the skills and tools you will need for useful planning.

In an interactive session, Hilda Polanco will reveal how executives in nonprofit organizations can build their "planning muscles." Join us to discover practices and tools that can help your nonprofit strengthen its planning function as you look to make your organization and your programs more sustainable.

We Will Discuss

  • Translating programmatic goals into operational strategies
  • Scenarios: planning for growth as well as for sudden crises and downsizing
  • Determining the impact of multi-year plans on organizational financial health
  • Understanding risk areas and implementing migration strategies
  • Becoming a more resilient and sustainable organization
  • Your questions will be answered!
