The authors identify seven essential components of strategic leadership that set high-achieving organisations apart from the rest of the nonprofit sector. Together, these components form an “engine of impact” – a system that organisations must build, tune and fuel if they hope to make a real difference in the world.
Along with setting best practices using real-world examples, the authors outline common management challenges faced by nonprofits, showing how these challenges differ from those faced by for-profit businesses in important and often-overlooked ways.
By offering crucial insights on the fundamentals of nonprofit management, this book will help leaders equip their organisations to fire on all cylinders and unleash the full potential of the nonprofit sector.
