The Greater Hazleton Chamber of Commerce is offering a program entitled Create a Matrix Map: An Important Tool for Mission Focused Businesses on Tuesday, January 16th.
The Matrix Map is a visual tool that plots all of the organization's activities -- not just its programs -- into a single, compelling image. By illustrating the organization's business model -- through a picture of all activities and the financial and mission impact of each one -- it supports genuinely strategic discussions. Join us for a thought provoking session that you can take back to your board or staff to evaluate. As an option you can come with a list of activities and programs and an annual profit and loss report.
