Adaptability— Assessing and Addressing Mission-Related Needs

A FIT Nonprofit has the capacity for superior impact in its chosen geographic region, creating lasting improvement related to its mission. An organization’s sustainability depends on its leaders’ ability to focus resources on activities that represent the most effective way to meet mission-related needs in its community. What happens when needs change? In this session, we will analyze real life challenges and outcomes from organizations that faced challenges from a changing environment. Participants will learn about practical strategies nonprofits can use to assess mission-related needs in their community, analyze how their programs are meeting those needs and take action to prioritize and adapt programs as needed.

Field of study: Business management.
