Mobilizing Resources to Achieve Greater Adaptability


  • Devise a resource mobilization strategy that takes into consideration the inherently restricted nature of particular resources (e.g. restrictions from grant funding vs. earned income).
  • Leverage your reduced focus on traditional fundraising to increase your focus on client needs instead of funder needs.


  • Be aware that increased requirements for financial returns might have a counter-effect on building a more flexible culture; replacing one set of inflexible requirements (expected changes in social indicators) by another one (expected changes in financial criteria ) will do nothing to solve flexibility problems.
