This book presents a revolutionary way for nonprofit organizations to do strategic planning. The fact is, the world changes continuously and rapidly. It is foolhardy to believe that strategies should not do so as well. Organizations already know this, but their traditions have locked them into a strategic planning process that is divorced from today's reality. That's why the plans sit on the shelf, why the plans so often seem to be an incongruous hodgepodge of impossible dreams and lengthy to-do lists for everyone from the board chair to the bookkeeper, why seasoned nonprofit staff roll their eyes when the next round of strategic planning begins, and why smart executives are always seeking work-arounds in between planning periods. The most important part of the revolution is tossing out the tradition and replacing it with a set of easy-to-use tools that keep the organization constantly engaged in the needs of its environment.
