This course draws on NCVO's cutting-edge thinking that has been developed from our strategy work with a range of charities over many years, to ensure that you keep your beneficiaries or cause at the heart of your future, while responding to changing times.

  • Day one is an introduction to strategy giving a theoretical focus.
  • Day two helps you put your learning into practice by making a meaningful strategy.


By the end of the two days, you will be able to:

  • identify what leading a good strategy process involves
  • develop ways of thinking about what strategy includes
  • participate in using tools to create an effective strategy
  • design ideas about how best to lead your organisation's strategy process to take away
  • apply with confidence what you learn within your own organisation.

Who should attend?

The course is designed for people who are responsible for leading the development of organisational strategy, typically CEOs, senior managers and trustees.

Please note: the focus for this course is on medium-term organisational strategy, and not annual operational planning.

This has been an excellent course which I have thoroughly enjoyed. Thank you Srabani.
