As written by Donna Martin, Director of State Partnerships and Special Projects:

“NASUAD is pleased to announce the release of the second module of the HCBS Business Acumen Center Toolkit, “Disability Network Business Strategies: A Roadmap to Financial and Programmatic Sustainability for Community-Based Organizations.” This resource is a “how-to” guide designed to help Community-Based Organizations (CBOs) evaluate, plan, develop and implement strategies to help build and sustain their organizations in various business climates.

 The second module, Step 2: Plan – Use Business Intelligence to Build the Strategic Plan for Your Organization provides guidance to CBOs serving people with disabilities on how to analyze, prioritize, and organize the information and data collected in Step 1: Prepare – Understand the Business Environment and Your Place within It. This module will help CBOs integrate the data collected from their environmental scan and strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats (SWOT) analysis so that they can identify goals, priorities and strategies for their organizations.

This user-friendly resource includes a collection of templates that CBOs and their teams can use to identify strategic priorities and potential strategies, evaluate return on investment, compare various priorities, develop strategic and operational plans and track the communication of those plans.
