Great Game for Social Sectors

1:00 PM - 5:00 PM: Half-Day Pre-Conference Workshops
Room: Topaz
Do you want to learn more about playing the Great Game within a nonprofit or civic organization
you are involved with in order to see them succeed?

The Great Game for Social Sectors was created to help public and nonprofit organizations adapt the proven principles of open-book management to a world in which "profit" is considered a dirty word. Because although social sector organizations operate differently than private businesses, the same concepts found within the Great Game can be applied.

Mission makes the social sector different than the private sector; however if you have no money, you have no mission. Focusing on self-funded opportunities and sustainable streams of revenue is key for these businesses. Nonprofits must learn it's okay to make money in order to make their services sustainable and they need to differentiate themselves from other nonprofits -- just like great businesses do.

In this session the former CEO of Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Ozarks explains how her team adapted the proven principles of open-book management to win big. By playing The Game, the agency became better stewards of their donors' dollars and enhanced their sustainability to ensure that their mission will continue into the future. Examples will be shared from practitioners in nonprofits, education and government, and attendees will see the balance needed between a financial focus and a mission focus.

Recommended for: leaders of non-profit and public organizations (including staff, board members, volunteers and donors)
