Leading the Business Planning Process

The purpose of the Market Business Planning Process is to define the biggest opportunities to grow your market.

In the Leading the Business Planning Process module, you will learn from experienced volunteer leaders about the action steps, timetable and member accountability for moving the business plan forward, bringing others along with you. The most critical outcome of Market Business Planning is to provide sharp focus on specific goals that the board will be accountable for achieving around volunteer and revenue development. The business planning process is an opportunity to identify and creatively tailor a plan to cultivate individual and corporate relationships, involving others in the innovative and lifesaving mission of the March of Dimes.
