HBS

It's been a couple of weeks since Executive Director Alaric Bien returned from an intensive, educational, thought-provoking week at the Harvard Business School's Strategic Perspectives in Nonprofit Management program. (what a mouthful!)

Now, it's time to get down to work and figure our what it all means for CISC!
  • What does CISC's value chain look like?
  • How do our programs fit into that framework?
  • What is our strategy platform?
  • How do we accurately evaluate our efforts throughout the organization?
  • Where do we need additional capacity or support to reach our mission?
  • Do we really need to revisit our mission statement... again?!
These are just some of the questions the board and staff will be pondering over the next several weeks. The end result will be a more organized strategy for achieving our goals, and adding value to our community in whatever form it takes.

Heavy thoughts. But if you would like to participate in this process, just let us know! More, different, and new perspectives are always useful and welcomed!
