3 page fillable PDF

Nonprofit leaders need to stay up to date on the latest trends and developments in their field to make informed strategic decisions.

This tool will provide ministry leaders with a framework for scanning their environment. Prompts like this well help you discover important information that can inform their planning:

  • What is happening upstream, or around the direct services you provide?
  • What the implication of environmental trends?
  • What would change for the people served if this was no longer happening?
  • What other organizations are working in and around this area?
  • What are the trends that are impacting fundraising?
  • What’s working, what’s broken, what’s missing and what’s confused?

Strategic Planning can sometimes be an insular process. An environmental scan can help to lift your sight to attend to what’s out of your control but has direct or indirect impact on your work.  It tracks the ongoing trends and occurrences, both internally and externally that encourage or hinder an organization’s success, both right now and potentially in the future.

Join countless leaders who have used this tool during their strategic planning process.

This tool was featured in the Strategic Planning for Kingdom Impact workshop in 2021.
