NGOs and Organizational Change: Discourse, Reporting, and Learning

Front Cover
Cambridge University Press, May 12, 2005 - Business & Economics - 181 pages
The organizational dynamics of non-governmental organizations (NGOs) have become increasingly complex as they have evolved from small single issue campaign groups into sophisticated multinational organizations. Alnoor Ebrahim's study analyses the organizational evolution of the NGOs as a result of their increased profile as bilateral partners in delivering aid. The book combines original case studies and research with an extensive review of literature from organizational and development studies and advances our understanding of management and organizational change in the non-profit sector.
