Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

J. Steven Otts Understanding Nonprofit Organizations: Governance, Leadership, and Management is a collection of the most insightful and most recent readings about the challenges of managing a nonprofit organization in the United States. The anthology examines the distinctiveness of nonprofit organizations through the writing of scholars, consultants, and practicing executives. It focuses on governing, leading, and managing nonprofit organizations and how nonprofit organizations differ from both the public and private sectors. The 37 chapters speak to the most important functions, contextual factors and internal functions, concepts, and issues that face todays leaders and managers of nonprofit organizations. Understanding Nonprofit Organizations: Governance, Leadership, and Management is an ideal text for use in graduate and upper-division undergraduate survey courses on nonprofit organizations and management.
