Growth Planning generally results in a growth plan, which, when done well, that will help the organization make clear decisions around how to allocate and sequence resources in a manner most aligned with its future goals. Growth plans will also help the organization communicate the ‘why’ behind its ambitions to key stakeholders, including staff, board members, and current or prospective funders.
