Environmental Scanning for Community-Based Organizations

Environmental scanning is a key first step in the development of a business plan for your organization. This process can help your organization identify internal and external factors that will affect your long-term sustainability. Who are your potential Competitors, Comparatives, Complements, and Collaborators, and how does this information help your organization accomplish its goals? 

In this webinar, participants in the National Council on Aging’s Network Development Learning Collaborative present their insights on and experiences with environmental scanning.
