In today’s world, change is a constant for nonprofits. This is especially so in crises such as the current Covid-19 pandemic. As staff leaders and nonprofit board members, your approach to change can be more consistent. The ACES framework, developed by Interim Executive Solutions, provides some guidance:
- Assess the situation – where are you now?
- Contain the crisis – shore up current operations
- Explore options – are there pathways to increase viability?
- Sustain the mission – develop and execute your plan.
