Class Description:

In these constantly changing times, nonprofit and public organizations that intend to thrive must build their capacity to lead and manage their own strategic change. If your organization doesn’t take command of its own change, it will be changed by the forces around it.
The "Taking Command of Strategic Change" webinar introduces a unique and powerful change leadership/management tool: the Strategic Change Portfolio. What makes this tool so powerful is its selective focus on the most important strategic issues facing your organization – both opportunities and challenges – and its use as a highly effective vehicle for creative, proactive board involvement.
Rather than generating long-range plans around arbitrary time periods, the Strategic Change Portfolio process results in a small number of very practical Strategic Change Initiatives that are intended to address the highest-priority issues at any given time. From year-to-year, the Strategic Change Initiatives that make up the Portfolio will change, as Initiatives are implemented and new Initiatives are added to deal with new strategic issues.

Class participants will:

  • Become familiar with the key steps in the Strategic Change Portfolio process, including: updating values and vision statements; identifying strategic issues; and fashioning strategic change initiatives.
  • Learn how to involve your board meaningfully in the Portfolio process.
  • Acquire implementation “tricks of the trade” to ensure that your Strategic Change Initiatives are actually translated from paper to action.
