I have spent most of my career working in corporate settings, and have spent the past 7 years consulting in the non-profit sector. Since leaving corporate Canada, I have learned a lot about how successful strategy differs across sectors and a lot more about how it’s the same. Setting clear goals and establishing accountability, mitigating the ‘tyranny of the urgent’, investing in capacity, supporting research and innovation are principles that have served corporate interests well and can serve the non-profit sector well too.
