Graduate Certificate in Strategic Planning and Board Leadership for Nonprofits

Strategic planning is the process by which nonprofit organizations examine their mission, programs, capabilities and desired outcomes with the intent to improve organizational efficiency and impact. When successfully completed, strategic planning reaffirms the organization’s mission, presents a clear picture of the organization’s strengths and weaknesses, and empowers the organization and its stakeholders by outlining the steps necessary to attain long and short term goals and maximizing organizational efficiency. Organizations that fail to perform regular self-assessments greatly diminish their chances at successfully completing their mission and overlook missed opportunities to fine-tune an organization’s managers and executives. The purpose of this certificate is to highlight the opportunities that strategic planning affords organizations and present an opportunity for executive leadership training.
