Creating and Sustaining a Competitive Advantage
Strategy and sustainability are today's key buzzwords. They embrace ideas and concepts about how to be more competitive and to enhance your long-term impact. Nonprofit leaders should ask themselves:
- Do your activities match your mission?
- What distinguishes your organization from others in the field?
- What is the competitive advantage you enjoy that can be maintained over time.
This two-day program focuses on three separate components of organizational survival and success: mission, finance and strategy. Just as every organization should reexamine its mission every 3-5 years, organizations should also review their revenue sources and mix. Mission and finance are linked by a coordinated set of actions that define your organization's strategy. The goal for this program is that participants leave with a better sense of the actions they and their organization can take to create and sustain a competitive advantage in carrying out the mission.
