Strategic planning is key to the success of any nongovernmental organization (NGO). Strategic planning involves discussion about your vision, mapping the field and your projects, as well as laying out your goals and how you plan to get there. Use the HOW TO handouts, along with their accompanying templates.
Your organization is only as strong as its volunteers and staff! Learning how to manage them and work together as a team will strengthen your organization and make your programs better. A well-managed volunteer program enables volunteers to feel successful and enhances your organizations reputation.
Sound financial management is another building block to a strong organization. Having a good grasp of your finances will allow you to see whether you have the resources to complete your projects.
