If you have never done a business plan, or need to update yours, Business Planning for Nonprofits can offer some guidelines.

According to the authors most business plans have four components:

  • Strategic clarity
  • Strategic priority
  • Resource implications
  • Performance Measures

The authors walks the reader through each part using examples from the  Bridgespan Group’s client base to illustrate their points.

The end product is important, but so is the process that provides the nonprofit with an opportunity to reexamine the relationship between “missions and programs, to specify the resources required to deliver those programs, and to establish performance measures.”
