Navigating Business Success

Define Your Strategy 

“Helping best-in-class teams realize their full value by providing them with the right answers, right here” isn’t just something that we say at Tanner, LLC, it is something we live by every day for our clients. Our NPO Advisory Practice can guide you through this process of defining a strategy for your organization. Every nonprofit organization starts with a passion, a desire to make the world better. Defining your strategy is the first step in putting that passion into action. A clear mission, guiding values, and the right goals become a compass for the entire organization.  

Establish A Mission 

A mission statement should answer the questions what does your nonprofit do better than anyone else and how does it do it? It should be concise, memorable, and clear. This is your organization’s magnetic north. If it’s not clear and concise, you won’t know if you’re off course. If it isn’t memorable, you won’t stand out from every other passionate NPO.  

Guide Your Decisions with Values  

Values are your organization’s heart and soul. They are not just words listed on a website; they are principles that guide every decision you make. When faced with choices, we at Tanner LLC ask ourselves, “Does this align with our values?” If the answer isn’t a resounding yes, then it’s a definitive no. This approach ensures that every step you take is consistent with who you are and what you stand for.  

Setting SMART Goals  

Goals are the measurable outcomes that move your organization toward its ultimate destination. At Tanner LLC, we advocate for SMART goals—those which are Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, and Time-bound. These goals act as the metrics that gauge how well your operations align with our mission and values. As part of our strategic planning process, we will take you through a series of questions that help ensure you’ve set the right goals for your organization. We believe if your goal isn’t big enough to scare you just a little bit, that it probably isn’t big enough. It also shouldn’t be so big that makes you laugh. 

The Roadmap to Success 

Once you have defined your strategy the next two steps of our process, Design Your Finances and Align Your Operations, become significantly more straightforward. Your finances become the map that highlights the major landmarks ahead, while your operations equip you with the right tools and methods to travel there efficiently.

We involve you in every step, ensuring that our strategies not only resonate with your values but also empower your growth.
