Description: Business planning is different from strategic planning. Business planning helps your program to focus on how you will achieve your mission. It gives you clear goals and measurable outcomes important to convey your mission to your community, to attract funders, board members, staff and volunteers. In this course you will discuss topics like market analysis to determine whether there will be an increased demand for the services you provide and who your competitors are; how to ensure that sufficient revenue is generated and that you have the staff and management you need; how to create a marketing plan; how to settle on a timeframe and determine your benchmarks; and why it is important to do an analysis of the risks and to develop strategies to deal with those risks.
