Description

OCASI, in partnership with Access Alliance Multicultural Health and Community Services, St. Stephen's Community House, Social Planning Toronto, and onBoard Canada, is pleased to offer Strategic Planning, the sixth in a series of ten workshops on governance. These workshops are intended for board members and executive directors of incorporated, community-based not-for-profit organizations based in the City of Toronto. Eight of the workshops, including Strategic Planning, will be available as webinars for public viewing.

Attendance is by registration only. Spaces are limited, so register early! We ask that each organization send no more than two people to each workshop. Registration is first come, first served.

Summary

A strategic planning process identifies strategies that will best enable an organization to advance its mission. As such, the strategic plan should drive all the other planning that an organization undertakes.

This workshop is designed to help senior leaders to develop strategic plans that can help them strengthen and sustain their organizations' achievements. By the end of the session, participants will understand:

  • What strategic planning is and is not
  • The benefits and limitations of strategic planning
  • The elements of a strategic planning process
  • How to implement a practical and effective planning process
  • The importance of strategic performance management
  • Critical success factors for executing the strategic plan, including action planning, change management and communications
