The Board Role in Strategic Thinking and Planning Why do boards need to think and plan strategically? Simply put, because it is at the very core of effective board governance. [ Board directors need to think and plan strategically because they are leading nonprofit organizations through one of the most turbulent periods of change in our history. This leadership imperative reinforces the need
for the board of directors to focus on critical issues and policy challenges vs. administrative details and programmatic implementation.A good mission statement articulates the overall goal of the nonprofit to everyone inside and outside the organization. It is used to guide strategic, long-term planning and helps to keep the school focused during both smooth and turbulent times. The absence of a mission statement, or having one that is unclear, may cause confusion inside the nonprofit as it faces various challenges, or it may result in inappropriate decisions. For a mission statement to be useful, it should be reviewed periodically to ensure that it reflects the current environment in which the nonprofit operates and the changing needs of the people it serves. This is particularly important for nonprofits because of the uncertain political and economic environments in which they operate. The board and executive director should work together in developing the strategic planning process and provide guidance and input to the plan. The board can be particularly effective in providing and analyzing information about the external environment, current trends in social policy, or new financial opportunities. Because strategic planning takes time and effort, several sessions will need to be scheduled to complete all the strategic planning steps, including gathering information, discussing current and proposed programs and services, projecting the financial resources that would be needed to implement various programs, prioritizing programs, and finalizing the plan. The board must formally approve the final plan, be committed to it, and support its implementation. ]
