Nonprofit Strategic Planning

Managing a nonprofit organization is a complex series of tasks that involves multiple bottom lines, various sources of revenue, and a multitude of people. Leadership must be able to keep a clear vision of the current underpinnings of the organization with an eye always on the horizon for new problems and new ways to solve them.

The ultimate goal of the organization is to manage all these moving parts and people in an orchestrated effort to advance the mission, create impact and ultimately cease to exist (by creating an effect that renders service useless). This essay discusses the current challenges nonprofit management encounters in strategic planning, budgeting, fundraising and the evolution in government contracting.
