Please read the Collaborations and Strategic Restructuring for Not-for-profits Study Guide and refer to the videos in the sequence indicated.

This course is presented in six modules. The modules are presented in sequence, but because users have different background knowledge and training needs, it is designed so you can focus on the sections that are most relevant to you and choose your own path through the materials. However, we recommend that all participants start with Module 1, as this guides you through evaluating the key issues impacting your organisation, its overall performance and whether collaborations or strategic restructuring may be the right option.
