Identifying Critical Issues, Desired Outcomes, and Potential Partners
This is the third of three webinars exploring the idea of strategic partnerships. Our goal is to acquaint executive directors, board members and key staff with an array of strategic partnership options and related principles and practices.
Nonprofit leaders - both board and staff - have important roles to play in the strategic restructuring process. This interactive webinar will provide guidance on how to lead exploratory conversations and where to focus. Participants will learn about three critical prerequisite questions to position their organizations for success and mitigate roadblocks in the strategic restructuring process:
Which issues are most significant to the organization's future success?
What goals or desired outcomes does the organization seek through a strategic collaboration with one or more organizations?
What key criteria are important to evaluate potential partners?
