Part 1: Strategic Planning Today
Date: September 16, 2021 9:30 – 11:15 am
Location: Virtual via Zoom
Effective strategic choices have a powerful impact on whether or not your agency thrives in the future. There’s a lot to consider — especially when many standard approaches must be adapted to these challenging times!
Navigate the core components of strategy development and learn how to apply current best practices. Principles will be peppered with practical tips, examples and tools to help you develop their own plans.

Part 2: Building Your Own Strategic Plan
Date: September 17, 2021 9:30 – 11:15 am
Location: Virtual via Zoom
If you aren’t making choices, picking priorities and setting boundaries, your strategies may be providing weak guidance for your agency’s efforts. And you need a good process to discover and build consensus-driven strategies.
Part II of this workshop builds on some advance “homework” and walks you through a candy shop of tools and facilitation ideas to help you apply concepts to suit your own needs.
