Agile Nonprofit

The Agile Nonprofit™ is a successful enterprise that never loses sight of the missions and has a healthy culture,  produces maximum effectiveness and runs efficiently. Agile nonprofits are not so lean as to be anemic, but are healthy, well-balanced organizations focused equally on mission success and business effectiveness.

Camelot’s Agile Nonprofit™ services combine a powerful balance of concepts from lean manufacturing, agile development, values-based leadership and proven business practices to assure mission success.

Creating an organization that is agile does not simply happen. You have to be intentional about choosing core values, defining a clear strategy, engineering the right culture, building the right structure, aligning key roles and utilizing the right internal funding models to work smarter and not harder.

The Agile Nonprofit™ Framework

Camelot’s proprietary nonprofit systemic framework is built on a modified version of the Business Model Canvas initially proposed by Alexander Osterwalder. Taking into account the unique attributes that drive nonprofits toward mission success the model creates a fusion of entrepreneurial startup and enterprise management. Placing a strong emphasis on outcomes over profit, Camelot’s framework allows a nonprofit to make incremental or disruptive innovation and plan strategic pivots while assuring mission success.

Camelot’s proprietary framework allows you to look at every aspect of your nonprofit to create a practical strategy to accomplish your mission. These innovative techniques permit you to systematically understand, design, and implement a new business model – or analyze and renovate an existing one.
