Growth potentialWhile realizing the potential for growth is organization-specific, a few basic steps can help a nonprofit assess whether and how to expand its reach, this Bridgespan case study says.

Bridgespan consultants Kelly Campbell and Rita Louh recount step-by-step their experience advising the recent expansion of Steppingstone Foundations, an educational-mentoring program.

From estimating the size of a community’s need to finding the room and funds to grow and making hiring decisions, the authors summarize their experience in five general growth-assessment tests.

The original case study has been reprinted in the Stanford Social Innovation Review.
