Management Development in Non-Profit Organisations
A Programme for Governing Boards

First Edition


November 2005 | 284 pages | SAGE Publications Pvt. Ltd
Voluntary organizations engaged in development efforts are usually immersed in very demanding work in unhelpful conditions. This leaves them little time to come to grips with the specialized demands fof management development. Adding to the difficulty is the prevailing tendency in many non-profits and NGOs to distance themselves from the world of `management`. However, the need for effective management in their work is often greater than in commercial ventures of a similar size.

In this context, the governing board can play an important role in the effective management of voluntary organizations, but it is a role that is largely neglected. This book—the first of its kind in India—draws upon the authors` broad experience in consulting to identify the needs of governing boards, and offers a programme designed to meet those needs.

This book is a practical, comprehensive and ready reference manual for board members of non-profit organizations (NPOs), covering all the issues involved—from the legal frameworks governing NPOs to useful guidelines on fundraising. Using the `frequently asked questions` format, it covers various aspects of NPO management, with an emphasis on the strategy—policy function of boards.
