STARR – Strategic Assessment and Roadmap to Recovery
Because in every crisis there is opportunity for creativity and growth.
“In times of disruption, it may be essential to re-examine and reset your strategic direction. It is also essential that your donors know you are doing it. They need assurance that your organization is responding in smart, decisive ways.”
– L. Scott Schultz, President
As the coronavirus pandemic upends life as we know it along with business as usual for nonprofits everywhere, it also presents a valuable opportunity: to build new strengths in rapid planning, to become a more responsive and adaptive organization.
S&W’s new Strategic Assessment and Roadmap to Recovery is a process designed for this purpose. Tailored to the needs of each client and completed in a compact 8-10 week timeframe, the STARR Strategy guides nonprofits in re-evaluating their organizational priorities and capabilities and illuminating the path to recovery.
