Nonprofit Strategic Planning: Leveraging Sarbanes-Oxley Best Practices illustrates how your organization can solve problems, establish important control mechanisms, and implement a strategic plan that is both realistic and relevant to everyone in your organization from the top down through compliance to Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) requirements and best practices.

Filled with worksheets and samples offering useable, "instant" information, this timely book shows your nonprofit how to leverage its strategic plan and SOX compliance to add greater value to the organization, and includes:
-An overview of what the requirements and best practices of SOX are, and how your nonprofit can implement them
-A look at the process of writing a strategic plan
-A strategic planning template and timeline to guide your nonprofit in drafting an effective strategic plan that achieves your nonprofit's distinct goals
-Discussion on helping small nonprofits scale their SOX compliance and strategic planning to fit the size of their organizations
