About the Product

Nonprofit organizations are complex and distinctive organizational entities. The literature of strategic management poses some interesting challenges and is only partially developed to inform decision-making for nonprofit managers. Strategic Management in Nonprofit Organizations uses a strategic management framework to consider key decisions that nonprofit managers and volunteer leaders confront as they plan and work to position their organizations for optimal success. The text blends together theoretical, empirical and normative literature with descriptive stories of managing in the sector to illustrate some of the challenges managers will face in their organizations. Further, the text suggests some optimal practices for managers who want to strengthen their organization. Perfect for graduate students in nonprofit management programs, this text fills a gap in the current literature by providing a thorough examination of management and planning issues experienced by nonprofit managers.
