This focus can help non-profit organizations use their resources most effectively to achieve desired outcomes.
For non-profit organizations, it is not enough to simply do things--they must do the right things and must measure the effectiveness of their efforts to ensure efficiency.
When developing a plan, the first step is revisiting the mission, vision and values of the organization to ensure that they are still accurate and appropriate.
All of the ensuing activities should be designed to ensure alignment with the mission, vision and values toward the pursuit of clearly identified goals.
An internally-focused business plan is often developed in conjunction with a balanced scorecard or a list of critical success factors.
This allows success of the plan to be measured using non-financial measures.

Internally-focused business plans target intermediate goals required to reach the external goals.
