Step 2: Plan- Use Business Intelligence to Build Your Strategic Plan

In “Step 1: Prepare,” of the Disability Network Business Strategies Roadmap, the HCBS Business Acumen Center guided community-based organizations (CBO) through the environmental scan and strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats (SWOT) analysis process. After taking a look at their external and internal environments, many CBOs find that the business environment that they work in today is more complex than it has been in the past. In “Step 2: Plan” of the Disability Network Business Strategies Roadmap, we describe how to analyze the information you collected and provide recommendations on how to organize and prioritize that information in a strategic plan that will help your organization achieve its goals.

Join us on Wednesday, April 24, 2019 from 12:30 – 1:30 PM Eastern as Erica Lindquist, Senior Director of Business Acumen at the National Association of States United for Aging and Disabilities (NASUAD) and Donna Martin, Director for State Partnerships & Special Projects at the American Network of Community Options and Resources (ANCOR) describes the tools the HCBS Business Development Learning Collaborative used to move from data collection to strategy development.

Learning objectives:

  • Understand how to analyze the results of your environmental scan and SWOT analysis;
  • Understand how to prioritize your goals and strategies;
  • Understand how to organize your strategic and operational plans; and
  • Understand how to manage the process.
