#LeadingImpact

This seminar will focus on what drives good strategy and how to develop a strategy that results in a clear purpose, effective decisions, better implementation and greater impact.

About the series

Following on from the success of What makes a good charity? NPC’s guide to charity analysis, the Leading Impact seminars will explore what an effective charity looks like. What makes a good charity? is intended to help charities and social enterprises assess their performance, and identify areas of strength and development, enabling them to improve and achieve more for the causes they are set up to serve. It also helps funders make decisions about the organisations they fund, and where to focus support.

Each seminar will explore a particular area we think makes an effective charity.

About this event

Most charities have a strategy, but does it ask the right questions? Has your strategy evolved to meet the reality of the external environment? Does your charity understand and articulate its role in addressing its cause? Are you prioritising activities that add most value and achieve most impact? Is your strategy flexible and adaptable?

This seminar, drawing on Strategy for Impact: NPC’s practical approach to strategy development for charities, will focus on what drives good strategy and how to develop a strategy that results in a clear purpose, effective decisions, better implementation and greater impact. We will explore:

  • How the internal and external components of strategy combine to maximise impact.
  • How theory of change can support a good strategy creation.
  • How organisations can prioritise actions and make tough decisions.
  • How collaboration can be an effective route to impact.
  • How evidence/data should feed into strategy.
  • Overcoming barriers to successful strategy development/implementation.

The event will be chaired by Iona Joy, Head of Charities, NPC and speakers include:

  • Katie Boswell, Deputy Head of Charities, NPC
  • Vidhya Alakeson, Chief Executive, Power to Change
  • Helena Raven, Associate Director for Impact, NSPCC
  • Kate Markey, Managing Director, Blue Sky Development & Regeneration
