NPC event attendees

Developing your strategic framework

About this event 

This seminar will guide you through how to develop a strategic framework, covering vision, mission, values, goals and enablers.  

A strategic framework provides ‘north star’ direction for what you want to achieve. It provides the basis for operational planning. It sets the strategy in a way that enables it to be flexible and respond to changing circumstances through the life of the strategy.  

In this seminar you will hear about the tools and approaches NPC uses when helping clients develop their strategic framework. Sally Bagwell, Associate Director for Strategy and Leadership will be reflecting on how we adapt the approaches to different circumstances. 

Kath Abrahams, Chief Executive of Tommy’s—a charity working to stop the heartbreak and devastation of baby loss and make pregnancy and birth safe for everyone—will share Tommy’s experience of developing a new strategy. Kath will speak about how the strategy was developed in conjunction with wide engagement from staff, trustees, and the communities they serve, and how the strategic framework is being translated into flexible, practical plans.

The seminar will involve presentations, Q&A, and with space to share your experiences and learn from others. 

This seminar is for people working in social purpose organisations who have a responsibility for strategy. That might include senior leaders from the executive or trustee board, as well as colleagues in strategy, operations and impact roles who have a responsibility for designing a strategy process. The focus of the session will be organisational strategy, but it may also be useful to programme managers leading on programme strategy. 

This session will be relevant for organisations that are: 

  • drawing to the end of a strategy period and thinking about ‘what’s next’;  
  • looking for better ways to set priorities and plans in a tumultuous external environment without being pulled off-track; 
  • feeling they have lost the ‘golden thread’ of organisational identity in the midst of multiple programmes and rapid adjustment;
  • reviewing and refocusing after a period of organisational or leadership change.  

A limited number of bursary places are available for small charities, ethnic minority charities of all sizes and ethnic minority representatives from charities of all sizes. Email to learn more.
