Mission-driven, not-for-profit organizations pose unique challenges to leaders and managers. These challenges differ tremendously from the profit-driven requirements of the corporate world, and are even greater when budgets are tighter. This comprehensive guide to managing in the nonprofit sector is a twofold resource. The first part is a user-friendly textbook examining what is involved in producing mission-driven goods and services, how to manage the relationships of nonprofits with the private and public sectors, and how to operate in both external and internal environments. Six case studies and end-of-chapter reviews facilitate learning in this expanding field. The second part is a practitioner's ready-reference handbook, complete with survival tips and action items.
