Summary
"Of singular concern to nonprofit organizations today are the problems of governance and management. As demonstrated in recent, highly publicized cases and in small, quiet crises across the nation, how an organization is run and who has the responsibility for it are questions of fundamental importance. Drawing on management research and inquiries into the nature of voluntary organizations, this volume provides insights into how managers, board members, and other leaders in the nonprofit sector can meet the pressing challenges of governance and management, and lead their organizations with informed vision and renewed purpose." "A publication of INDEPENDENT SECTOR, this book identifies what is unique about leadership in the nonprofit sector, and outlines what can be adapted and applied to nonprofit organizations from management research and practices developed in the business and public sectors. Governing, Leading, and Managing Nonprofit Organizations brings together leading scholars, researchers, and managers in the field to chart new directions for nonprofit management theory and practice in such areas as board structure and functions, board/staff relations, the mission of nonprofits, volunteer recruitment and retention, resource development and management, management for social change, and public policy issues that affect the management of nonprofit organizations."--BOOK JACKET
