Strategic planning in the nonprofit sector
For nonprofit organizations, strategic planning is a critical exercise. In order to best serve the community, strategic plans are leveraged to manage goals, initiatives, and efforts to help change the world. Nonprofit organizations leverage many different planning frameworks, including the balanced scorecard method, to manage integral pillars like client reception, internal process efficiency, finances, and learning and growth. By focusing on planning and strategy execution, your nonprofit organization will have great insight into where you have room for improvement and how your departments can work together to complete your goals.
The challenges of strategic planning for nonprofits
Like organizations in any other sector, nonprofits have to face a few hurdles that come with strategic planning:
DEFINING SUCCESS & REACHING GOALS
Nonprofits are mission-centric, and they focus on achieving goals rather than improving a bottom line. As a result, success can be difficult to measure. It's essential to narrow down your organization's goals and focus on the most actionable, easily measurable ones that will help you drive change.
UNCLEAR ACCOUNTABILITY & RESPONSIBILITY
Unclear accountability is among the largest issues for-profit and nonprofit organizations face. When it's not clear which teams and individuals are responsible for specific tasks, frustration grows for everyone involved. By assigning tasks, making responsibilities straightforward, and holding the right people accountable, you can achieve more and lift the mood of your entire organization.
DISCONNECT BETWEEN PLANS & RESULTS
Goals that are not well-defined, measurable, or actionable are impossible to reach. You can help your plans connect with your organization's reality by aligning your strategies organization-wide. Everyone working on a project should know how their tasks fit into your nonprofit's plan as a whole.
