Environmental scanning is a key first step in the development of a business plan for community-based organizations (CBOs). This process can help CBOs identify internal and external factors that will affect long-term sustainability. Who are potential Competitors, Comparatives, Complements, and Collaborators, and how does this information help a CBO accomplish its goals? 

Please join the Aging and Disability Business Institute on March 7 at 1:00 PM Eastern for a two-hour webinar. Participants in the NCOA Network Development Learning Collaborative will present their insights and experiences on environmental scanning and market analysis.


–  Jennifer Raymond, Chief Strategy Officer, Elder Services of the Merrimack Valley
