The past year has solidified the concept "The Strategic Plan is Dead. Long Live Strategy." While strategic planning can help support your organizations long term goals, adaptive planning is crucial in a changing world. Maximizing mission impact while sustaining the energy of your staff and board is a top priority in 2021.

Participants in this four-part series will learn and practice an approach for in-the-moment planning that encompasses team dynamics, communication, operations, programming, and financial sustainability. Course registrants will also gain access to multiple toolkits to aid this planning process. This course will conclude by exploring two related concepts – strategic collaboration and business modeling – as tools to find new mission impacts in a rapidly changing world.

At the conclusion of this course, participants will be welcome to attend a monthly affinity group call for registrants to discuss course topics with one another and learn from each other moving forward. Together, we will create a community of collaboration, innovation, and resilience to meet tomorrow’s challenges.

Participants in this workshop will:
  • Be prepared to lead their teams through business modeling and adaptive planning
  • Understand the importance of collaborative partnerships and mission impact
  • Access tools and templates to plan and monitor their mission impact and organizational health

This event series is presented in partnership with the Montana Association of Nonprofits.


Webinars will take place Wednesdays in February and March, 12 - 1 p.m. Central.
