Effective Non-Profit Management : Context, Concepts, and Competencies Hardback
Part of the ASPA Series in Public Administration and Public Policy series
In an environment of increased interdependency and collaborations among non-profits, for-profits, and governmental organizations, researchers and practitioners have begun to identify the need for a distinctive set of values, skills, and competencies for effective non-profit management.
Underlining the relationship between these two sectors, Effective Non-Profit Management: Context, Concepts, and Competencies clarifies the emerging links between the public and non-profit sectors at the local, national, and global levels.
Each chapter concludes with a discussion of a recent issue and a case study.
They include discussion questions, a listing of Web resources, and a review of terms at the end of each chapter.
The introductory chapter discusses non-profit organizations, their phenomenal growth, the different categories of non-profits, and the scope and significance of this sector.
The second chapter focuses on explaining the linkages among non-profits, for-profits, and government organizations.
The next couple of chapters provide a detailed discussion of essential non-profit law, non-profit governance, human resource management, resource acquisition and management, marketing, technology, nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), and effectiveness.
