Creating an Adaptive Plan

Confidently navigate uncertainty with a dynamic action plan

The world around us is constantly changing. Change can be a challenge but also an opportunity. As the pandemic highlighted, being flexible and constantly adapting is key to any organisation’s ability to reach its full potential.

In this program, your leadership team will create an actionable short-term plan to respond—and adapt—based on the changing world around you.

This program is for organisations based in India, South Asia, South-East Asia, and Africa. If you are based elsewhere, please explore our Leadership Accelerator program.


Program Benefits for Nonprofits and Social Enterprises

Having clarity on your goals and creating a plan for uncertainties can help your organisation become:

  • More nimble and resilient

At the end of the three-month period, leadership teams are expected to:

  • Get clear on where your organisation wants to reach in terms of impact 
  • Agree on your organization’s top priorities to help reach that destination
  • Develop an action plan to address areas of uncertainty
  • Tailor practical tools and processes to more confidently make hard choices
