Cross-Border Strategic Planning Collaboration: A Tale of Two Entities

Despite having noble missions and grand visions, many nonprofit organizations lack fundamental skills in strategic planning. Such competencies are required to achieve superior performance in the modern environment marked by constant change, competition, and complexity. During a recent visit to Bombay, India, Singh was asked by the board president of a 110-year-old nonprofit human services agency helping abandoned girls and women to develop a strategic plan to guide the board and its future CEO in planning for its future. As a professor who teaches management and leadership to graduate students at the Rutgers University School of Social Work, his presentation will focus on the process, results, and benefits of the collaborative partnership that he and his students entered into with the agency to provide free strategic planning consulting services from the United States.

Karun K. Singh is a Professor of Teaching at the Rutgers University School of Social Work. His teaching, research, and consulting interests focus on nonprofit and public human services management, collaborative strategic planning, and social entrepreneurship. He developed the Singh Strategic Planning Measure for Excellence (SSPMX) to help nonprofit human service organizations achieve superior organizational performance. His volunteer activities include serving as the Chair of the Network for Social Work Management-New Jersey Chapter, and as an Editorial Advisory Board Member of Human Service Organizations: Management, Leadership, & Governance.

 Co-sponsored by the Graduate Students Association of the School of Social Work. Indian snacks will be served.
