Have an actionable strategic plan in just three weeks
The Rapid Growth Workshop is a structured process for leadership teams to design a winning, action-oriented strategy that sets your nonprofit up for sustainable growth.
Thought Partners for the Best
We help leaders from some of the most ambitious nonprofits turn their vision into actionable steps that lead to quick growth.
Why is the Rapid Growth Workshop better, faster, and more cost effective than a traditional strategic planning process?
Traditional strategic planning relies on unstructured meetings to define who’s doing what, when, and why. It places more value on documentation than action.
The Rapid Growth Workshop is a facilitated process that leverages structured exercises to get everyone focused on high-impact, low-effort actions that drive growth.
Traditional Strategic Planning
The average nonprofit spends 3 - 6 months on their strategic plan at a cost of $180,000 of your staff time.
Rapid Growth Workshop
The Rapid Growth Workshop takes three weeks at a cost of $7,500 of your staff time.
