Introduction to Power & Influence Analysis

Learn how to incorporate a power and influence analysis tool in building effective and sustainable strategies for success.
About This Seminar

As we continue to serve our communities in these unprecedented times, it is important to have a strategic tool to visualize your roadmap to success. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the political shift of power, and the fight for social justice; nonprofits have been responsible for getting the work done with little to no resources or direction. COVID-19 has lifted the fact that the nonprofit sector can benefit greatly by incorporating tools that help strategize efforts for policy/system change that reflect the needs of our communities.

A Power & Influence Analysis tool is crucial for setting a structure to analyze a constantly changing and complex landscape. One of the biggest benefits of incorporating a Power & Influence Analysis tool into your nonprofit work is that it can be used at any point in the planning and implementation process. Whether you are assessing the landscape to start a new nonprofit, organizing an effort to shift policy, or have been in service for 30+ years and are creating yet another strategic plan; this tool will help maximize your organizational efforts.

Topics Covered
  • Gain a specific process for identifying relationships between people, organizations, and institutions
  • Learn the value of relational power as an important dynamic in social organizing
  • Tackle a key issue identified by the group using the analysis tool
