Is your organization sustainable?

In today's rapidly changing world, how can you ensure that your work will endure? Your goal is sustainability. It’s not some magic destination, but reached by making strategic decisions every day.

In this interactive training, we will learn how to turn your organization's business model into a single, compelling image called a Matrix Map. This Map is your team’s guidebook for uniting you in strategic decision-making, empowering you to make smart choices when responding to change.

You will walk away with a tool you can use to increase the impact of your mission and lead your organization toward financial stability. What better way to start the new year?
