Packed with case studies and ripped-from-the-headlines examples, Non-Profit Organizations: Real Issues for Public Administrators introduces critical issues commonly encountered when managing non-profit organizations and gives you the tools to develop policies and procedures to meet the challenges that arise when these issues occur.
The authors use the case study methodology to explore decision-making issues and provide potential solutions.
It provides an applied framework to use when managing a non-profit organization. The book provides case studies that range from unethical behavior to poor operational decisions to illegal activities in non-profit organizations.
The authors discuss the events in phases and then identify what issues should concern the administrator and potential solutions to each phase of a case study.
In addition, many of the case studies address more than one issue that threatened an organization's finances and its credibility to its stakeholders and the public. Using the information in this book, you can create a checklist of issues that will help you and your organization avoid scandals or alleged criminal activity, and better defuse fallout if an incident occurs.
It gives you a "safe" environment in which to "live" through a case study without suffering the consequences of lost resources, assets, or worse, public trust, for your organization in reality.
