Strategic Planning for Nonprofits in Indian Country

For any business, strategic planning is a necessity. It’s the key to looking to the future and creating a direction intentionally as opposed to simply reacting to the marketplace on a daily basis. In today’s fast-paced marketplace, strategic planning helps nonprofit leaders maintain their sanity and build a company based on the values that matter most to them. Although this is true, more than 50 percent of Executive Directors of nonprofits say that they’re unhappy with their strategic planning process. Even though they think strategic planning is necessary, they don’t fully realize the benefits they were hoping to attain from it.
