Day 2: Creating a Roadmap for Your Business 

The introduction of the NDIS requires traditional not-for-profits to transition to a social business structure.

Operating under the NDIS will mean not-for-profits (NFPs) need to take control of costs and balance their mission and economic commitments to achieve the best possible outcomes.

The development and application of commercial methodology will need to be applied to operations in order to compete with market forces while simultaneously maintaining the quality of organisational mission. 

This workshop will cover drivers of change, business frameworks and the social economy.

As a result of participating in this workshop, you will:

  • Understand the business elements required to shift from a welfare model to a social business model;
