Strategic Planning Amidst Uncertainty: How to create an adaptive plan
For nonprofit leaders, the future often seems uncertain. Even if your team is clear on the impact it wants to have, how can you navigate the challenges that might arise? It can be difficult to know whether your nonprofit organization is heading in the right direction.

In this webinar, learn to proactively chart a course forward, even when the path ahead is unclear and the world around you might change. Through adaptive planning you can identify the priorities and actions that are most critical to success, and then build plans to act – and react – to risks or barriers that might be on your path towards impact.

In this webinar, you’ll:
- Learn about “adaptive planning” – an alternative approach to “traditional” strategic planning
- Hear about the concept of a “destination” to anchor an adaptive planning process
- Understand how to define a set of priorities aligned with your organization’s destination
- Think through how to take action, accounting for the potential hurdles you may face
