The Culpeper Wellness Foundation and the Northern Piedmont Community Foundation are collaborating with the Center for Nonprofit Excellence to offer free nonprofit management workshops for local nonprofits. Strategic Framework June 20, 9:00 -11:00 am Trainer: Cindy Colson, Director of Strategic Initiatives, CNE Strategic planning is important to an organization because it provides a sense of direction and outlines goals. More recently organizations are stepping away from traditional strategic plans - detailed, specific activities to be pursued over a specified time frame - to a strategic framework that offers a sense of how an organization will approach its work. The framework is grounded in proactive responsiveness and adaptive leadership, balancing an organization's long-term goals with the flexibility to take advantage of unexpected opportunities. Participants will learn how to: • develop an identity statement; • create a strategy screen; • understand the organization's Big Question, and • develop a strategic roadmap.
