Organizational Reboot Series (ORS)

New Direction, Improved Success, That’s ORS

To be successful today, your nonprofit needs to think and plan like a business. NPHD’s Organizational Reboot Series is a comprehensive curriculum designed to discover the untapped potential of your organization, reboot your nonprofit organization for greater impact in your community and achieve greater outcome based goals.

We offer this as a workshop, and for those who want more hands-on attention and assistance we offer related consulting services. We can provide assistance with one or more modules of the Organizational Reboot program that are particularly challenging for you, or if you prefer, we can assist with the entire process. Assistance is provided via telephone and web conferencing, and on-the-ground presence as necessary.

The process must be designed to bring management, key staff, and your Board of Directors into alignment, so that you are positioned to successfully implement your new change initiative.
    • Project set-up and initiation defines a process for getting both staff and board buy-in as the project proceeds: Who are the key stakeholders in each part of the process and how will they be involved / kept informed as work proceeds?
    • An initial kickoff meeting involving key stakeholders may be appropriate.
  1. An Organizational Assessment
    • Analysis of the present state of the organization, including the state of branding and marketing
    • Assessment of competitors and partners
