Shrinking budgets, high expenses, and ongoing shortages of skilled staff require cutting costs while growing programs.  Strategists are being tapped to create plans that help their organizations contract and grow at the same time.  Hear how others have managed this tricky dynamic and created effective cross-functional collaboration for development and execution.  Learn what skills are needed for today’s tough financial reality.  Whether you are already a successful leader in strategy, finance, operations, or new to your role, there is something for everyone to better navigate these turbulent times.

In-person conference with lots of networking time.
