How do you make tough program decisions? In today’s rapid pace of change, nonprofit business models are quickly evolving and strategic decisions need to be made if organizations are going to be sustainable. This interactive training introduces participants to the Matrix Map, an engaging, visual tool that turns an organization’s business model into a single, compelling image that best represents the mission impact and financial viability of the organization–program by program or grant request to grant request.
Beyond just a picture though, the Matrix Map offers strategic options for board and staff to frame choices and make adjustments to strengthen their business model. Are you choosing the right mix of programs for mission impact and financial sustainability? At the conclusion, participants will leave with a tool they can use to engage staff and board in the pursuit of sustainability. Its use is a practice in which every nonprofit should engage its board once a year.
