Creating a Strategy
The strategy of your group can have a huge effect on its impact.
Whether you're trying to make the most of the limited time you have, or you're planning on growing your group and where to focus next, spending some time thinking about your group's overall strategy can be a great way to increase your group's impact.
We've included some recommendations from the Centre for Effective Altruism, as well as other groups' strategies. While we think these resources will be useful, we also encourage you to think about your comparative advantage when considering your group's strategy.
If you want more individualised advice about your group's strategy, we encourage you to get in touch with CEA's Groups Team: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Recommendations from the Centre for Effective Altruism
The following talks from members of CEA's Groups Team discuss our recommended strategy for local and university groups.
Common questions from organisers
Should my group’s strategy be the same as CEA’s strategy?
Should my group only target “current or future leaders, thinkers, and philanthropists”?
Should our group do outreach to people who aren’t students and young professionals?
