The Agile Nonprofit™ is a successful enterprise that never loses sight of the missions and has a healthy culture, produces maximum effectiveness and runs efficiently. Agile nonprofits are not so lean as to be anemic, but are healthy, well-balanced organizations focused equally on mission success and business effectiveness.
Camelot’s Agile Nonprofit™ services combine a powerful balance of concepts from lean manufacturing, agile development, values-based leadership and proven business practices to assure mission success.
Creating an organization that is agile does not simply happen. You have to be intentional about choosing core values, defining a clear strategy, engineering the right culture, building the right structure, aligning key roles and utilizing the right internal funding models to work smarter and not harder.
Camelot’s proprietary nonprofit systemic framework is built on a modified version of the Business Model Canvas initially proposed by Alexander Osterwalder. Taking into account the unique attributes that drive nonprofits toward mission success the model creates a fusion of entrepreneurial startup and enterprise management. Placing a strong emphasis on outcomes over profit, Camelot’s framework allows a nonprofit to make incremental or disruptive innovation and plan strategic pivots while assuring mission success.
Camelot’s proprietary framework allows you to look at every aspect of your nonprofit to create a practical strategy to accomplish your mission. These innovative techniques permit you to systematically understand, design, and implement a new business model – or analyze and renovate an existing one.
