Fulfill Your Organization’s Mission

Strategic Planning for Mission-Driven Organizations

Brady Ware Nonprofit Strategic Planning ProcessEconomic challenges and a rapidly changing world have forced mission-driven organizations to do more with less. Delivering on your mission can be difficult in the present, and contemplating long-term sustainability can sometimes be overwhelming. A solid near-term strategy can address current issues and provide a solid foundation for the future.

Many independent consultants offer comprehensive strategic reviews that stretch into the distant future, involve days of meetings, and cost tens of thousands of dollars. Brady Ware’s Strategic Planning addresses only the next three years, the critical period that can make or break an organization.

Our highly focused engagement generates:

  • Leadership alignment around a common vision
  • Clarity about the true environment in which the organization operates
  • Momentum and energy that is necessary to affect meaningful change
  • A limited number of the most critical strategic goals

Brady Ware delivers strategic goals that are:

How big is your communications team and budget? What structure does your communications team have? What will your next annual report look like?
