Not-for-profits (NFPs) vary significantly in their purpose, size, and complexity, but they all have one thing in common: they exist to fulfill a societal need or accomplish a public benefit. Strategic planning helps set priorities, allocate resources, and align staff and volunteers' efforts to effectively accomplish the NFP's mission. Successful NFPs can execute a clear strategy, monitor progress and evaluate results. This CPE course offers detail-rich examples and case studies to help you apply proven techniques to strategic planning.
