Workshop Description

This workshop will take program and front line staff through a series of questions and group activities that will help them design an effective logic model to propel their organization. The focus of this training is to break open your mission statement, look at it, and then empower the staff to identify the resources and talent it will take to execute on all parts of it.

Learning Objectives

  • This workshop will help nonprofits align their mission statement with the true cost of executing on it and identify the talent needed to bring it to life.
  • Creation of an organic logic model that can be revisited and tweaked over time as your organization’s program demands change.
  • Identify the paid and unpaid talent needed to execute on the mission statement if not already on board within your organization.
  • Taking a serious look at your program budget and adding in the needed accounting variances depending on increases or decreases in program demand and human capital.

Target audience:

Executive directors, board members, managers of small to medium sized nonprofits, organizations entering into or thinking about strategic planning, organizations entering into or thinking about succession planning.
