Disrupting Your NonProfit: Lessons From Lean StartUp
Think Big. Start Small. Seek Impact. Those are the three starting principles of Ann Mei Chang's Lean Impact — a guidebook that focuses on how and what nonprofits can borrow from the business sector to create radically greater social good. In this interactive workshop, we'll review the philosophies presented in Lean Impact and focus on the beginning and end points: goals and metrics. During our time together, you'll learn and work through the following:
The guiding principles of Lean Impact
How to set audacious goals for your organization (and why they matter)
How to ensure you're measuring the right things for the greatest impact
If you're ready to take your nonprofit's impact to the next level, we're ready to challenge you! Come prepared by having your organization's goals top of mind and any metrics currently used to track progress.
This workshop is ideal for nonprofits and social impact organizations, both from startups to established enterprises.
Coffee and breakfast will be provided.
