The nonprofit world is seeing a downturn in volunteerism, a squeeze on its revenue streams and rising competition. How can you be the “up periscope” for your organization to see what is ahead and to make important course changes to maintain your organization’s relevance?
Assessing not only once but many times in different forms helps to move us from a static annual process to one that is more of a progress check in, which allows for continuous improvement and in “doing what is necessary” for your organization’s constituents.
Why is it that year-over-year the priorities of a nonprofit organization change and major planning takes place yet sometimes committees and their composition remain relatively unchanged? It would be the same as leaving the budget unchanged year-over-year regardless of the changes in the organization.
