Social Sector Strategy

Course Number: 47300

Course Description

Organizations can't do everything, but everything is not equally worth doing. Learn how achieving strategic clarity can help leaders and organizations make critical decisions and tradeoffs to maximize impact with limited resources. In other words, strategy is about choosing what you will do - and equally important - choosing what you will NOT do. Strategic clarity is essential and must be guided by fully understanding the problem you want to address, then determining the most impactful solutions, and finally assessing the highest potential role of a given organization. In this class you will learn: frameworks for mapping systems, problem vs. solution focus, how to articulate a strong intended impact and theory of change, how to conduct analysis internally and externally to inform strategy, how to assess and align programs to strategy, and how to evaluate strategic opportunities.
