Eventbrite - Strategy and Business Planning

Every organisation needs a strategy. The external environment is constantly changing; funding sources, competition, government priorities, technology and stakeholder expectations. Through it all your organisation has to steer a course to deliver the greatest value with limited resources. How do achieve that? Well that’s where a good strategy makes all the difference.

Aims and Objectives

The aim of this workshop is to provide participants with practical guidance on strategy development and implementation.

By the end of the course participants will have:

  • Considered a number of tools for developing and implementing organisational strategy
  • Defined or reviewed or the process for strategy development in their organisation
  • Considered how to engage their boards in effective strategy development
  • Explored how to measure and track implementation
  • Identified practical actions
  • Drafted a strategy map for their organisation

Style and Content

The day will be split into three parts. The initial session will consider the need for a clearly formulated strategy in voluntary sector organisations of different sizes. It will define the interaction between vision, mission and strategy, explore what it takes to develop a strategy and who should be involved.

The second part of the day will introduce a number of tools and models for strategy development, giving participants a practical toolkit.

The third part will be a practical session for participants to work together developing strategy maps for their organisations.

Who should attend?

This workshop will have a strongly practical focus. It is perfectly suited to those in leadership positions including the chair, chief executive, trustees and senior staff. It will also be of interest to those preparing to take on such roles in their careers. The concepts explored will be relevant to organisations of any size.

  • Those new to management positions
  • New trustees
  • Those seeking to start a new organisation or activity.
