At some point, every nonprofit leader, board member, or nonprofit stakeholder, will likely face their own unique version of a tough or impossible decision. It may be due to a sector-wide challenge, such as an economic recession, civil unrest, donor lethargy, etc. It can also be an organization – specific hardship, such as the loss of a major funder’s support due to decision – making outcomes by the board of directors or some other executive. No matter the cause, tough times force hard choices. During a crisis, strategic decision-making becomes even more critical. This course will take nonprofit leaders through a series of learning activities framed around the following:
• Comprehend the importance of developing a solution-centric and crisis ready culture.

• Apply real time strategic decision-making methods using selected case studies.
• Recognize and identify critical outcomes in crisis decision making.
• Know the importance of effective problem-solving methods for today’s philanthropic landscape.
