After a hiatus of writing for my blog, I am starting up again.  Here is my first blog in quite some time.  Based on my belief that Relational philanthropy requires nonprofits to adopt a philosophy that erases the power differential between philanthropy and nonprofit organizations.

From +McKinsey & Company , I just used this quote talking to a nonprofit client today, "Software companies must constantly evolve and capture new growth opportunities or risk slowly declining into irrelevance." Same is true for nonprofits.
Turbocharged initial growth is essential to surviving in the software industry. But what comes next? Here are four lessons so leaders can write their organizations’ second act. A McKinsey & Company article.

From +POLITICO  Thinking Upstream.  Might not agree with it all but this there are some great ideas here.  What is most intriguing is the blending of sectors (public, private, social enterprise.  I was talking to someone this morning on the phone who was pretty eloquent in describing Impact Investing.  The world is moving from #nonprofit #philanthropy to bridge financing for the development of social enterprise  The shifting is towards mission-driven rather than tax code driven. It is not an either/or but a both/and. You agree?
Michael Bloomberg, who has become one of the world’s most ambitious philanthropists since leaving the New York mayor’s office last year, says modern philanthropies should work with governments to encourage them to experiment and take risks that they can’t or won’t take on their own. Codifying his philanthropic principles for...

#Nonprofit leaders.  Stick with me a moment.  Many established nonprofits face the challenge of expansion. Do we go deeper? Do we go Wider? Do we go Longer?  This article has some very translatable ideas. +Deloitte  is a great source for leaders to pay attention to.  Really.  
The most successful portfolios exhibit three broad characteristics: They are strategically sound, value-creating and resilient.

interesting article on the politics of Philanthropy. Is this the election cycle where transparency actually starts to matter?

While this is a review of some pretty basic ‪#‎strategic‬ Planning principles, ‪#‎nonprofits‬ leaders should add this one to their reading pile.Would love to know how you think about adapting your planning process. Thinking about responsive design in strategic planning is a #ValueWeAdd  
I talk to a shocking number of Product Managers on a regular basis who are exasperated at their company’s approach to roadmapping. Some companies refuse outright to have a roadmap, instead opting to put to paper only what they can commit to in the next few sprints – ie. a release plan or project plan. …

This week I met with three different folks representing #nonprofits  seeking advice.  All share the common challenge of developing and maintaining high performing boards.  While there are great organizations out their like +BoardSource to help leaders achieve board success, there are times that you need an outside voice.  Board development in a value that I add to our community so if your nonprofit is looking for board training or a deeper engagement that includes board assessment,, evaluation and/or redesign don't hesitate to reach out for a free initial consultation. 
Mark led the strategic process from his deep reservoir of experience and knowledge. Combined with input from us on the inside of the organization, it resulted in greater self-knowledge, sharper assessment tools and keener direction. I highly recommend Mark as a strategic partner, leader and wise guide.
