Part of the Executive Education Online Leadership Series at Harvard Kennedy School, a series of unique online programs where participants work in groups, engage in live classes and office hours, and complete assignments by applying the concepts and frameworks they learn to their own organizations. Participants are able to utilize techniques and faculty feedback in their work as they progress through the programs and achieve immediate impact.
Mobilizing Your Nonprofit Board is a 8-week Harvard Kennedy School Executive Education online program designed to help executives of nonprofit and non-governmental organizations engage their boards in more consequential and meaningful work that produces greater value for their organizations. The program curriculum focuses on four modules:
- Key Concepts of Governance as Leadership
- Identifying and Responding to Practice Challenges
- Simulation: Case Study of a Difficult Board Situation
- The Challenge for Executive Leaders
For each module, participants will be introduced to a set of frameworks in a case and/or reading. Participants will then have the opportunity to consider the framework’s relevance for their organizations by taking part in online discussions with their colleagues and using electronic workbooks designed specifically for the program. During each module, Faculty Chair William Ryan will hold a live online session with program participants.
