Adaptive Strategy Planning

Adaptive Strategy Planning is designed to take nonprofit organizations beyond the usual strategic plan to create a strategy they will really use.

Nonprofit organizations trying to affect complex social issues need a strategy planning approach that considers the continuously changing context in which organizations function. Therefore, strategy planning needs to align an organization’s vision, mission, and strategic goals, yet pro-actively include a process by which the strategy plan can be adapted as the context changes. We help organizations create an adaptive strategy plan that allows them to chart a clear course and yet, when needed, to nimbly and thoughtfully adapt the plan to remain competitive, relevant, and effective. Our strategy planning process utilizes several Appreciative Inquiry techniques.

The Adaptive Strategy Planning process is designed to take as little as 120 days. It can be faster in some cases and in other cases it might take a little longer. It all depends – on the commitment and effort your organization makes.
