What's your organizational problem?
We did a strategic plan but nothing seems to have changed.
Our funders say we need a new strategic plan but we don't want to spend a year doing this.
We have opportunities for growth - but we are not sure if we are ready for the next step - or if these ideas are good for us.
Our organization was having success for a long time but it seems to be stuck now. Why?
We have loyal donors but can't seem to get new ones.
How do we know if we are making a difference
Our activities do not get attention in our community.
There are several museums/theaters, choral groups/etc. in our area. We want to work together but we are also in competition.
Since the implosion of newspapers we have a hard time reaching new audiences.
How do we operate in the new digital media world?
