More informations about this product

Description

Strategic Planning is one of eight nonprofit management courses in the Learning Institute Certificate Series. The course presents standard nonprofit concepts, vocabulary, and strategies through a 90-minute video presentation. A downloadable participant guide reinforces the presentation and contains worksheets and an Organizational Assessment Tool to assist with post-training implementation. The course takes from six to nine hours to complete.

This donation allows one student to enroll in this course. The course is available online to this student for one year.

Benefits for Organizations

If you lead or manage a nonprofit organization or public library, you can learn how to:

  • Prepare for the planning process through information gathering, analysis, and comparing the organization's current positioning to its goals
  • Gather information through external, internal, and market assessments
  • Write a vision statement that includes a future direction, a hope for community change, and an element of excitement

Expert Teacher

The course was prepared by Frank Martinelli, president of the Center for Public Skills Training, with guest Julia Taylor, executive director of the YWCA of Greater Milwaukee and past president of the National Association of YW Executives.

Certificate Available at an Extra Cost

A certificate is not part of the TechSoup offer; it is available through the Learning Institute program of the Society for Nonprofit Organizations (SNPO). Participants can earn 0.6 of a continuing education unit (CEU) for each course from Michigan State University by paying an additional fee to the Learning Institute and submitting completed assignments for evaluation. Successful completion of CEU assignments for the entire series entitles them to the Certificate in Nonprofit Leadership and Management from SNPO and Michigan State University.
