I just pulled some preliminary data from our 2017 Nonprofit Communications Trends Report Survey. Staff from about 400 nonprofits have participated so far (add your voice now, please!)
About 35% of participants say that the “extent to which strategy drives our communications work” is either somewhat better or much better. That’s the good news!
But when we asked about the ability to focus on the implementation of the strategy, we see some bad news.
40% say the “ability to clearly focus on a limited set of priorities” is somewhat or much worse in the last year. 43% say the “extent to which urgent tasks overtook important ones” in 2016 was somewhat or much worse.
Will these results hold true in the final report? We’ll see . . .
The survey for the 2017 Nonprofit Communications Trends Report is open through the end of the month.
Please take it now, and add your voice and perspective!
When you take the survey, you’ll be the first to receive the report in January and you’ll also get a special invitation to a preview webinar a full week before we release the report.
