Better Nonprofit Management Series

The Role of Organizational Agility in Nonprofits

Tuesday, March 21, 2023 (Rescheduled)
10 a.m. to 12 p.m. Eastern, online

Presented by: Dr. John D. Lloyd
Fee: $45

Workshop Description

In today’s world, continuous change is the rule rather than the exception. Leaders need to understand the driving forces of change (e.g. politics/elections, economy, social impact funding, workforce/virtual work environment). These varied forces of change have contributed to a growing interest in organizational agility for both practitioners and researchers. While organizational agility has been, and continues to be, primarily associated with for-profits, this training will provide a framework for how nonprofits can incorporate organizational agility into their strategic management philosophy.

Learning Objectives

  • Organizational Agility: what is it, what is it not, and why it matters 
  • Assessing organizational agility — a framework for evaluating agility 
  • Organizational agility as part of the strategic planning process  
  • Practice implications for nonprofit boards and leadership 

Audience 

Nonprofit leaders of director level and higher, such as director of operations, development director, finance director/CFO, etc. Additionally, board members and executive committee members of the board are welcome.
