NeighborWorks Achieving Excellence Program:

Applying the power of outcome-focused thinking and performance

Achieving Excellence classroom from Boston 2017
The NeighborWorks Achieving Excellence (also sometimes simply called Achieving Excellence) 
Program is an opportunity for a nonprofit to transform to be even more performance-driven and outcome-focused. Through NeighborWorks America's collaboration with Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government, approximately 50 seasoned CEO's (or other senior staff) will take part in a performance program unlike any other — one that assists you in taking your skills and knowledge to a level you may not have thought possible.
