Episode 44: 2022 SERIES – Strategic Planning

The Nonprofit Radio Show is kicking off 2022 episodes with a series on three inter-related topics on the minds of nonprofit leaders: strategic planning, succession planning, and staffing. This is the first episode in the series.

So many organizations want to launch a new strategic planning effort after two years of “being on hold” through the pandemic. In this episode, Nancy and Sarah talk about what strategic planning looks like in 2022 and how an organization can implement a planning process that reflects the biggest questions in front of them. 

Question to reflect on before you listen:
Why does your organization want to launch a strategic planning process? What “big questions” do you hope to answer?

Discussion questions:

  1. What resonated with you about this conversation? What would you like to take back to your organization?
  2. What are your guiding principles that would serve as guard rails for this strategy planning conversation?
  3. What big questions are in front of your organization?
  4. What are your next steps to develop a strategy for 2022 that is right-sized to your organization and the times we are in?

Word of the week: Agility
What does “agility” mean to you related to planning? How could your organization become more agile?
