Organizations who focus are more likely to be successful… and funding actually starts to be tailored to them.

At the Foundation Center Library, you will undoubtedly see a crowded bookshelf in the strategic planning and strategic prioritization section. But one recent book stands out as a resource for the busy nonprofit leader who needs guidance and practical advice to focus their work and increase their impact: Mission Control by Liana Downey.

 

Our conversation this week with Liana Downey offered some highlights from her book, including:

  • Why organizations need to focus
  • How goal setting can support your focus
  • Using an option tree framework to focus (this will change your planning process)
  • Identifying what strategies will actually impact your mission

Be certain to pick up a copy of Liana Downey’s book Mission Control. As a consultant, board member, and former executive director, I’ve participated in a lot of strategic planning processes, and her book will be an invaluable resource if you’re completing a planning process without a consultant. And if you are looking for a consultant, her book will help you understand the questions to ask to get a consultant who will truly challenge your organization to focus for greater impact.
