Forward Planning Top Tips

Your forward plan isn’t just for Accreditation- it should be a user-friendly, working document that enables you to identify and share your goals, and the measures to achieve them. The Accreditation Standard states that effective, resilient organisations plan both for long-term success and to make sure they can adapt and survive in a changing environment.

We can think of this as the corporate engagement spectrum. At one end is ‘hard’ sponsorship where the issue is simply how much value the initiative or programme will add to corporate profitability- directly or indirectly. At the other end is corporate philanthropy where a company – or an individual in charge of a company – give resources away with no hope of return.

We can think of this as the corporate engagement spectrum. At one end is ‘hard’ sponsorship where the issue is simply how much value the initiative or programme will add to corporate profitability- directly or indirectly. At the other end is corporate philanthropy where a company – or an individual in charge of a company – give resources away with no hope of return.
