The Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness (SREE) turned fifteen, its founding members were rolling off the board, and the organization was ready for a strategic refresh.
The Blue Seats team engaged with SREE in 2021 to create a strategic plan. To do that, Connie and Sylvia Flowers:
- Interviewed 22 board members, founders, student members, and partners about the organization’s purpose and opportunities,
- Surveyed more than 300 members about their vision and priorities for the organization,
- Engaged with a steering committee to share vision, process, and assess recommendations,
- Design and produce the three-year plan and an executive summary.
SREE’s executive board has fresh new leadership, updated mission & vision statements, and an ambitious and achievable plan for 2022-24. SREE Executive Director Ellen Weiss and the Executive Board used these priorities to plan the budget, organize the work, and measure success for 2022.
The Best Part
Wordsmithing a mission statement with 10 smart, decisive, measurement pros. Working with the lovely and talented Sylvia Flowers to interview & support the SREE members. Helping an organization focus on their strengths and invite more people into their meaningful, wonky, engaging tent.
