strategic planning

Today, political and economic uncertainty is the norm and the pace of technological and social change has vastly accelerated. While the environment in which movement work has and continues to rapidly change, the tools with which we analyze, assess, and plan our work has not evolved much and, in many cases, become antiquated.

In order to ensure a strategic plan is holistic, dynamic in every way, and that it serves the organization throughout the breadth of the years planned, Universal Partnership’s Principal, Rusia N. Mohiuddin, has adapted and developed an innovative strategic planning process that integrates a deep understanding of the community which the organization serves, values, and best practices based on core principles driving the organization. Ultimately, the strategic plan should yield a dynamic, not static, understanding and plan that has anticipated social, political, economic and technological shifts affecting the constituency and is prepared to act as these shifts begin to take shape.

Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, & Accessibility (IDEA)

By exploring, assessing and developing a deep understanding of the makeup of organizational ecosystems (on an individual level, staff team level, and the internal and external impact of organizational work) development of IDEA principles is work towards identifying the values currently exist within the organization and where there is room to grow and develop.

As with all work with UP, this work must be designed specifically for the organization and the work they do. Using innovative methodologies, the development of IDEA principles is not only about espousing a set of statements that represent the heart of an organization's values but it is about planning and implementing the manifestation of those values and principles into action and practices.
