 Mission Driven Panel 
Decades ago Peter Drucker helped us understand nonprofit organizations face unique management challenges. These challenges are similar for any “mission driven” organization.  For the purposes of this session, a mission-driven organization, can be non-profit or for-profit, public or private, governmental or non-governmental, philanthropic or religious. In this moderated panel discussion the panel will explore unique strategy execution challenges and solutions specific to mission driven organizations.
