In the world of associations, keeping your goals at the front and center of everything you do is of the utmost importance. With your Board of Directors losing and gaining members from year to year, it is crucial to have a vision for your organization solidified in writing to maintain accountability. I recently sat down with VMware User Group Executive Director Brad Tompkins to discuss his approach for developing a multi-year goals strategy with the VMUG Board of Directors and what associations should know to ensure their goals are met.
When setting aside time to brainstorm goals for your organization, Brad says there are a few key things to keep top of mind:
Once goals are set, the job isn’t over. It’s important to make it a priority to revisit all of your goals–big or small–to ensure accountability. From there, you can celebrate your wins, and understand what’s needed to prevent misses.
Setting (and reviewing) multi-year goals can be a daunting challenge. It can be difficult to identify the right place to start and with so many strong opinions filling the air, it can easily become overwhelming. With Innovatis Group’s expertise guiding the process, though, it quickly becomes a more manageable (and even enjoyable!) process for both you and your Board of Directors.
