This spring, the YNPN-NYC board is excited to launch Sloppy Strategic Planning happy hours!
Cool... What does this mean?
We think strategic planning has become a tortured phrase for impact industry professionals. On the one hand, it symbolizes our hopes and savvy thinking for where we want to go. On the other hand, it has become a painful shorthand for endless, risk-averse discussion, and paper pushing. This can create an unpleasant tension.
We want to change this by offering a bi-monthly opportunity to confront topics of strategic importance in an informal social setting over drinks. Together, we can create a space and time to talk openly, honestly, and humorously about the direction of our sector and how it relates to our individual professional // organizational development.
