A common criticism of nonprofit organizations is that they have not developed a capacity to think and plan strategically. The objective of this course is to explore many aspects of strategic planning and management and evaluate the relevance of this common business tool in the not-for-profit environment. The course will consist of readings, discussion, case studies, and analysis of the applications of strategic planning in other organizations. The tools and approach are equally applicable to non-profit, for-profit or governmental organizations.The major project for the term is the analysis of an organization's utilization of the concepts in the course in the development and implementation of a shift in strategy. Students will select either an organization that they are familiar with from actual experience or study an organization through the use of research and interviews. It is essential that each student select an organization by the second week of the term so that the analysis may make maximum application of the course concepts.
