Strategy for Greater Impact
Before you can have an impact on the community, you have to have a strategy. Community impact is the result of establishing clarity, designing your theory of change, building leadership and collaborative teams, and managing performance.
“The strategy development consulting we received was perfectly timed to assist us in the process of a leadership change, when we needed to understand where we were as an organization and, more importantly, where we needed to go. With a comprehensive view of our operations, we now have the power to act proactively — rather than just reacting.”
—Douglas Rohme, Executive Director and CEO, Middle Georgia Community Food Bank
Here's how we can help:
ESTABLISHING STRATEGIC CLARITY
Knowing where your organization is headed, and what activities will drive results, starts with gathering insight into your industry, your stakeholders (including staff), and your operational environment. The Georgia Center for Nonprofits makes it easy to account for those factors, eliciting input and incorporating perspectives into a strategy that defines vision, mission, competitive advantages, and strategic priorities.
DESIGNING YOUR THEORY OF CHANGE
Your blueprint for success depends on the goals you want to achieve over a particular timeframe, and the criteria you’ll use to decide the best course of action to pursue them. With that impact statement and theory of change, you have a framework for understanding and accomplishing your long-term aims.
BUILDING LEADERSHIP AND COLLABORATIVE TEAMS
Implementing a strategy for greater impact takes skilled leaders with the ability to form and manage teams, both externally and internally.
Strategy execution requires adaptability, the result of monitoring performance and ensuring that actions drive results. With the Georgia Center for Nonprofit’s Strategy Roadmap, you’ll define SMART goals, apply them across your organization, evaluate progress, and adjust accordingly.
