Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Provides readers with an array of lenses for looking at a social agency from the outside in, and from the inside out

This highly accessible text takes into account the organizational dynamics that readers are likely to have experienced and provides them with the conceptual tools for reassessing their understanding and considering how to act on their new insights. Renowned scholar Armand Lauffer shows readers how to apply organizational theories to challenges they confront at work, and to uncover other challenges they may not yet be aware of.

Synopsis:

Understanding Your Nonprofit Agency, written by internationally renowned scholar Armand Lauffer, will fill the growing need for the distinction between corporate business operations and nonprofit operations. The book will focus on how nonprofit agencies operate and not how they are managed. It has been assumed that both entities function similarly. Currently, this assumption is increasingly seen as groundless: nonprofit and profit-driven organizations have different goals and function differently from each other. This text addresses the current trend to differentiate how nonprofits are disctint.

Synopsis:

Rev. ed. of: Understanding your social agency. 2nd ed. 1984.
