A plan is a roadmap. The commitment of the board and staff to the destination is both the first and most essential step in the process.
Strategic planning is an extremely effective tool
when nonprofits have a specific problem to solve
or issue to face. However, with limited time to
devote to planning for the future, and board and
staff resources that are already stretched,
efficient use of resources is essential.
That's why Glavin Jacobson, Inc. incorporates the
strategic planning process into existing board and
staff work whenever possible. A well-crafted
strategic plan can be the touchstone your staff and
board members look to as they approach current
and projected challenges.
