The viability of a social venture depends on more practical factors than the passion and motivation behind its existence. Strategic plans are realistic, coherent and detailed roadmaps for achieving your goals for social change. Such plans will incorporate outlines of the organization’s goals and provide directions for achieving these goals. This training will help you take a deep dive and thoroughly consider the journey ahead. It will challenge and provide you with tools to examine your ideas’ viability and long-term validity critically. It emphasizes the need for a knowledge-based understanding of the various aspects of strategic planning. This course will help you create structure and long-term plans, set SMART goals, and identify possible risks before they occur.

    Practical guide in Strategic Planning for Social Change Makers.

    I really enjoyed this course it was with clarity more especially the vision, mission statement and core values explaination. However, theory of change and risk assessment still a little of hard to understand them fully.
