In 2012, the Ontario Nonprofit Network (ONN) underwent an evaluation of some of the critical issues inhibiting the success and growth of the nonprofit sector in Ontario. The top item identified was the need for a true Human Capital Strategy, which involves succession planning and the development of a sustainable leadership pipeline. Though the initial report highlighted that overall, we are not prepared for the future, the question still remains about whether this is truly due to a lack of foresight or more because of a lack of resources. Could it be that we are not planning ahead because we don’t have the resources to do so? From the Ontario Nonprofit Network.
