Strategic Planning in Nonprofits Interactive Learning

The Strategic Planning in Nonprofits (SPiN) Cycle

Strategic Planning is cyclical. You reflect, chart a course (plan), implement your goals, learn from the experience, and then stat all over again-each time making progress toward your vision and mission. We recommend completing the cycle every three years. The graphic below illustrates the main stages of the Strategic Planning Cycle, and of our SPiN Toolkit.

When you hover your mouse over the image, black-and-white icons will appear. Use them to watch the SPiN videos, download the SPiN kit, or find one of many valuable documents for your own strategic planning process.
