Nonprofit organizations often have multiple stakeholders and a set of goals and expectations that are challenging to fulfill. To help Global Washington members and others make sense of this complex landscape, Global Washington sponsored a Nonprofit Management Workshop on June 17 at the Global Washington office.
At the day-long workshop, Oscar Luna of Spinnaker Business Consulting and Dr. Thomas E. Byers of Washington State University first introduced the concept of results-based management, a strategy focusing on performance and the achievement of outputs, outcomes, and impacts. They then led the 16 participants through hands-on exercises related to developing a budget and a monitoring/ evaluation plan using tools that participants could later tailor to their own needs. The presenters offered a follow-up individual discussion with any of the participants as they incorporate the tools into their own organizations.
Global Washington is committed to strengthening our member organizations, in part by providing high-quality workshops like this one. As we continue to build up the capacity of the state’s international development community, we plan to offer more trainings and useful resources to which small and mid-sized NGOs typically lack access.
