Description

Successful Future Planning in Your Non-Profit: Navigating the Adaptive Cycle

Planning for the future of your organization requires you to take stock of where you are now as an organization. Although it may sound like an exercise you are constantly doing, organizations often fail to see their own blind spots or how something external to their environment can affect the organization drastically. Change is inevitable, whether you are trying to create change in the communities you serve, or resource challenges force you to adapt to change, good organizations are able to make sense of their situations and plan accordingly.

In this buzz session, you will learn about the adaptive cycle (also known as the eco-cycle). It is meant to be a sense-making and planning tool. It helps make sense of different dynamics we see and experience as part of the systems around us. The tool invites us to focus also on creative destruction and exploration in addition to typical themes regarding the development and maturity of your organization. The adaptive cycle makes it possible to spur agility, resilience, and sustained performance by including various phases of development in sense-making and planning processes.

Learning objectives:

  • Understand how the adaptive cycle relates to non-profit organizations
  • Identify where your organization is on the adaptive cycle
  • Identify where your programs or services are on the adaptive cycle
  • Apply learnings to organizational future/strategic planning
