The workshops are not
academic seminars. They help participants apply the methods taught and move
into action to make greater tangible progress.
The Mission Tune Up – Rigorous thinking through the
essential mission of the organization, its impact and value added, given the
variety of issues to be considered – the constituency, the needs, the
competitive/collaborative landscape, the distinctive competence and resources
of the organization – and steps to engage the entire organization in shaping
and understanding the mission.
The Balanced Scorecard
Dashboard – Helps participants define a limited number of goals in each of
four key areas: Outreach, Funding, Operations, and Learning and Growth,
identify metrics to measure progress, and then create a dashboard to report and
track results. This helps define the specific strategy of the organization and
the means for control of action to carry out the strategy.
Challenges – Helps
participants get started tackling vital goals, grasp the essentials of project
management and deal with obstacles that typically impede achievement –
psychological, management, institutional and political barriers. It provides
tools to create short term performance breakthroughs and assess one’s own
implementation patterns as a basis for continued achievement and learning.
Corporate-Nonprofit Strategic Alliances
– Helps participants identify those unique features of their
mission and activities which have strategic congruency with the mission and
values of selected corporations. One or more Pro forma value propositions
are considered and developed as the framework for making a specific proposal
for a strategic alliance with a selected corporate partner.
