Organizations and Their Next Steps in Community Development
Best practices for organizational growth include starting with an assessment of the current strengths and weaknesses, followed by the development of a measured approach before taking the next steps on their community development journey. These organizations need tools, just like a compass, to ensure the most efficient path for their strategic growth, mission readiness and expansion opportunities. This course will help an organization with the initial steps, identify strengths (from key staff to mission, vision and values) and goals to help determine where they are, where they want to be and how to get to the next destination in their ongoing journey. The course will provide details on how to approach next steps in the world of community development and the available products that can help these organizations meet their mission and goals.
