"RIGHT SIZE" STRATEGIC PLANNING - MONTROSE

Strategic planning, fundraising, board development, reserve fund development and other topics often seem like “one size fits all” practices.  But nonprofits move through very distinct stages – startup, growing, mature, dying/reinventing – and the challenges and opportunities predictable at each stage will influence your  planning, infrastructure, resource development, –  and the kinds of people you’ll need for both board and staff. During her February workshop on strategic planning, Illene Roggensack referred to these “life stage effects”.  In November, she’ll dig deeper, describing how to recognize your stage as well as how this recognition affects everything you do. If you didn’t attend in February, no worries – this workshop will stand on its own!
