Knowledge management is the key to understanding. Steadman & Associates offers your staff courses to familiarize your nonprofit with the marketplace and your place in it. We look at topics such as value, competition, and performance. These classes can be taken inhouse or at designated times and places to be announced.
Class: Why Should I Support You?
Class Length: 3 Weeks
Subject Matter: What do people mean when they use the word value?
We focus on defining value. A discussion on the reasons why a stakeholder
should (or should not) do support you. We examine typical stakeholders and
their thought process in the "buying" process. We then create a formulaic
argument to persuade the stakeholder that there is greater benefit than cost
in choosing your product or service.
Goal: To create a template for a strategic plan by highlighting your value to
current and potential stakeholders.
Class: The Strategic Plan: Where to Compete and How To Win
Class Length: 6 weeks
Subject Matter: Any real business, rather for profit or nonprofit, is in competition
with alternatives for customers and investors. In this module you will tackle the
concept of defining value in terms of where to compete and your definition of winning.
For a business to reach its potential, it must understand its strengths and weaknesses,
as well as those of its competitors, and the markets in which it will compete. You will
create a strategic plan, consisting of 11 components, created to assess, capture, and
monetize the value you have to your potential stakeholders.
Goal: To create a template for grant-writing that expresses the creation of value in terms
of the market, your potential competitors and your stakeholders.
