End-of-year planning is often an exciting and educational time for most not-for-profit executives and program managers. It creates the opportunity to establish strategic objectives for the coming year, evaluate existing program effectiveness, and contemplate changes that drive more value to those served. What makes the process so valuable is that it creates an open forum for the exchange of ideas about how to serve, add value, and drive growth more effectively. There is also discussion about finances, fundraising program effectiveness, and how to drive additional donor engagement. The goal is to develop a plan that guides the organization in the new year.
An essential part of the planning process is to look beyond the “four walls” to understand the impact of broader trends, issues, and changes impacting organizations. This means taking a broader view to understand how others in the industry are tackling common challenges and responding to new ones. Understanding how others are navigating complex waters can lead to an “a ha” moment which can act as the catalyst to the next great idea.
