Rohan Sarma, Head of TISS AESDII, Mumbai started the integrated workshop by setting the context for next two days in respect to the current scenario in CSR and how this workshop will help the development practitioners develop a comprehensive understanding in respect to why and how financial and programmatic operations can go hand in hand.

The workshop entailed sessions on various topics. On the first day there were sessions on Workshop on stakeholder mapping, Development Management with Results-Based Management Approach, Frameworks for organizational learning, Change and Partnerships, and What do Funders expect from an NPO within a Dynamic Development Sector. On the second day, there were sessions on Workshop on Financial Management, Fund-Raising Using Change Language in Grant/Proposal Writing, and Finance Clinic.

The session on Workshop on stakeholder mapping was an hour-long interactive workshop for not for profit organizations. It enabled the participants to identify various stakeholders and the influence they have on their organizations’ activities.

The session on Development Management with Results-Based Management Approach was conducted by V Venkataramana, the CEO of Shantilal Muttha Foundation, Pune. The session focused on how to develop and implement programmes to achieve results.

Frameworks for organizational learning, Change and Partnerships was conducted by Rohan Sarma who used an A to Z template to help the participants unlearn and learn, develop new perspectives towards the development sector, and how to bring ‘change’ in what they do to bring a change. He emphasized on how organizations fail to sustain the main reason being their stubborn nature and how a constantly learning organization will enable the organization to achieve the objectives of their organization.

The final workshop on What do Funders expect from an NPO within a Dynamic Development Sector was conducted by Avinash Madhale, Programme Officer, Centre for Environment Education. He conducted an activity for the participants which was to give an idea of an elevator pitch. He said, “Today in the development sector solving problems are insufficient. Instead, we need to identify and solve the right problem. This capacity is what funders look for in those approaching them. Organisations need to be passionate and skilled in an area and should be able to present their ideas to the funders in precise terms over a very short duration. It takes practice and commitment to do this and showcasing your mastery over a short duration not only impresses the client but also highlights the organisation’s case in a compelling way.”

The second day started with the session on Financial Management by Lalit Sethi, Finance Consultant, TISS AESDII. The session covered four topics mainly Financial Management, Good governance, Legal Compliance and Fundraising strategies.
