Product Overview

Nonprofit board members know that strategic planning can lay the foundation for strong governance, sound management, effective fund raising, and the solid evaluation of mission fulfillment. Unfortunately, board members also often avoid strategic planning - citing everything from lack of time and consultant cost to questioning the value of strategic planning if "things are going so well". This quick, easy-to-use, compact guide for busy nonprofit board members - written by Fisher Howe, a veteran board member and sought-after consultant to nonprofits - demonstrates how strategic planning need not be tedious, irrelevant, or expensive. In fact, it shows how strategic planning can generate interest, enthusiasm, and pride in the performance of an organization. Fisher Howe's practical, no-nonsense approach demystifies the often intimidating strategic planning process, shows why it is essential, and provides detailed instructions for successful execution. Offering illustrative examples and straightforward action steps, Howe guides board members through each critical phase.
