This broadly conceived text provides a balance between the theories and practical applications that drive nonprofit management. It fully covers basic management skills, but with an added emphasis on understanding the external environment in which nonprofit organizations operate--especailly the many changes nonprofits are currently facing that are outside of their immediate control. The book provides a conceptual framework by revealing the theories, research, and past practices associated with the topics covered in each chapter, rather than just offering a collection of tips and tools. This rich coverage prepares readers for a full range of practical concerns faced by managers in nonprofit organizations, including the growing emphasis on accountability and ethical behavior; issues in board governance and responsibilities; the importance of intergovernmental relations and public policy; finding different sources of revenue and funding; improving agency effectivenesss and program evaluation; and skills and advice for advocacy and lobbying.
