Show Notes

Would you get in an airplane if the pilot had no idea where he was flying to, had no fuel gauge, and wasn't sure which lever was the accelerator and which was the rudder? Probably not. But we take off with our organizations all the time not knowing these things. In today's episode, I share my PLANE framework for the essential data that you need to succeed.

This episode has a free worksheet that you can download here if you'd like to follow along with the framework for your own organization. No pressure though! You can always just listen first and come back later to the worksheet. If you want to see an example completed worksheet, I filled one in for Merakinos that you can download here. I'm laying it all out there for you :) 

Step three in the framework, Aviate, is a bit tricky to explain with no visuals. So I made up some example flows! You can download one specifically for a nonprofit here. You'll also get a bonus data flight plan example as well.
