Learn@Lunch: Conducting a Strategic Program Portfolio Review
January 16 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm
You go into nonprofit work to make a difference in the world…to serve…to have an impact. Yet this impulse gets many teams and organizations into trouble.
You may be trying to be all things to all people. This leads to a proliferation of programs and services. They may have made sense when they were first created. But do they fit today’s reality? Learn about a rigorous process that enables you to review your portfolio of programs and initiatives and make strategic decisions.
Here’s what you’ll take away from the session:
- Understand the elements of organizational sustainability
- Identify the four key components of the sustainability matrix
- Consider how to apply the sustainability matrix in your context
Please note our Learn@Lunch program will now be held at the Nonprofit Village office.
