Discussion: Organizational Strategic Goals It is becoming increasingly important for organizations to demonstrate that they are of significant public value. This requires them to have clearly defined short-term and long-term strategic goals. As a current or future leader and manager, it is essential that you are not only able to help your organization develop these goals, but you must also help create strategies for meeting them. In this Discussion, you consider strategies for prioritizing and meeting short-term and long-term goals for the organization that you selected for your Final Project. ASSIGNMENT Write an explanation of strategies that you might use to define, prioritize, and meet short-term goals (14 years) for the organization that you selected for your Final Project. Include how the goals would support flexibility in an ever-evolving world. Then with a futurist context in mind, explain strategies that you might use to define, prioritize, and meet your organizations long-term goals (1520 years). (The Final Project Overview is below- The agency is fictitious) Having a proactive nonprofit organization is essential to providing humanitarian efforts and improving the lives of people across the world. This paper recognizes that most nonprofit organizations are established to reactively provide solutions to tragedies in the aftermath of a natural disaster or other horrific events. Therefore, this writing establishes the International Disaster and Poverty Relief Organization, a nonprofit organization that will work diligently to promote a sustainable globe by looking at vulnerable communities and using evidence-based data to establish proactive programs to help them. To do that, the paper identifies the organizational mission and the SWOT analysis of its strategic position while establishing short and long-term goals and how to overcome challenges. International Disaster and Poverty Relief organization The International Disaster and Poverty Relief Organization will be a non-profit organization with its headquarters in North Carolina and an array of branches across the world to help calm the effects of disasters and provide an avenue for well-wishers to improve the livelihoods of people across the world. The organization will be working with the local governments to alleviate the levels of suffering and destitution that is sometimes experienced in tough times. The organization is based on the idea that an evidence-based approach to providing solutions to a significant number of problems that affect the world can help increase the well-being citizens and social stability. The organizations founders also recognize that a significant number of other existing non-profit organizations do not take time to understand the needs of the communities; therefore, they spend a lot of money providing solutions that do not improve the lives of the intended community.

Read and evaluate your partner’s survey – think of yourself as a consultant or advisor to this person or organization who filled out the survey. You are their “fresh eyes” on it. 3) Write and submit a 4 page paper on what you observed in reading their survey – what things were expected? What was surprising? What advice would you offer? What is missing? What follow-up questions or actions would you take?
