Webinar: Beyond Strategic Planning "By The Book": A Market-Driven Approach to Strategy

Host Organization: Community Action Partnership

August 14, 2017, 2 PM ET

Effective planning requires rigor and investment but need not be especially protracted or costly. This session suggests that a focus on three processes, pursued in an integrated manner, can produce strategic direction which allows an organization to thrive in the context of the realities in which it operates. The three are: strategic engagement, marketplace analysis, and "Good to Great" analysis (assessment of the agency based on key elements of the book of that name by Jim Collins)-an unorthodox mix that can prepare an organization to discover what its constituents and the marketplace need for it to be and do.

Strategic planning is routinely identified as a high-priority T/TA need for Community Action Agencies. Please join the Partnership and Irv Katz, former CEO of the National Human Services Assembly for this special webinar on the strategic planning process.
