Webinar: Tools for Better Understanding the Current Business Environment

October 17, 2017

Register for October 25 webinar

Business Acumen describes an organization’s ability to quickly and keenly understand and address a business situation in a manner that will likely to lead to a good outcome. The first step is to understand the current environment by conducting background research, including: political environment, economic conditions, demographics, and opportunities.

Please join the Business Acumen Center on October 25 at 12:30 PM Eastern for a one hour webinar. Erica Anderson, Senior Director of Business Acumen at the National Association of States United for Aging and Disabilities (NASUAD) and Elizabeth Priaulx, J.D., Senior Disability Legal Specialist with the National Disability Rights Network (NDRN) share tools that community-based organizations (CBOs) can use to collect the information they need to structure a strategic plan designed to help them meet their goals.

Learning objectives:

  • Understand key elements to collect during an environmental scan;
  • Understand how to use that information in a SWOT (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, Threats) analysis; and
  • How to use stakeholder engagement in your business strategy.

This webinar is available as part of the Business Acumen for Disability Organizations grant from the Administration for Community Living to NASUAD with nine national partners.

Register for the webinar.
