Recommended Resource – Managing the Nonprofit Organization

Managing the Nonprofit Organization
by Peter F. Drucker

About the Reference

Managing the Nonprofit Organization by Peter F. Drucker addresses the unique management challenges associated with nonprofit organizations. In this book, Dr. Drucker explains the differences between managing for-profit and nonprofit organizations in the areas of mission, leadership, resources, marketing, and goals.

Benefits of Using this Reference

Nonprofit organization management can be truly challenging in the areas of strategic planning and tactical business execution because of the lack of a profit driver. In our experience, nonprofits that don’t effectively replace the profit driver with another equally strong motivator risk diminished performance and organizational value.

StrategyDriven contributors like Managing the Nonprofit Organization because it illustrates a method for creating a compelling mission, setting goals to that mission, and gaining and maintaining employee/volunteer commitment to the achievement of the mission goals. We believe that while essential to the management of nonprofit organizations, many of the principles Dr. Drucker describes in Managing the Nonprofit Organization would greatly benefit for-profit companies as well.

Many of the best practice recommendations found on the StrategyDriven website compliment the principles described in Managing the Nonprofit Organization; making this book a StrategyDriven recommended read.

The Advisor’s Corner Introduction

The Advisor’s Corner expands on the strategic planning and tactical business execution dialogue between StrategyDriven contributors and our websites visitors. Postings in this category reflect questions asked by StrategyDriven members and guests and the advice provided by one or more of our highly experienced business professionals. Additionally, StrategyDriven members are provided the opportunity to share their insights and experiences by way of comments and feedback to the individual postings.

All visitors to the StrategyDriven website are encouraged to submit their questions to The Advisor’s Corner by email at [email protected] or by using the ‘Email The Advisor’s Corner’ link located on the right sidebar on the StrategyDriven website. If desired, questions may be submitted anonymously to maintain confidentiality.

New Model Released – Business Process Relationships

StrategyDriven contributors are pleased to announce the release of our third model, Business Process Relationships. This model illustrates the many interrelations between the strategic business planning and tactical business execution processes. Additionally, the model provides a framework against which to association the many best practices posted on the StrategyDriven website.

New Category Released – Decision-Making

As a way of saying thank you to our registered members, StrategyDriven contributors are launching a series of new member’s only categories covering practices that permeate the strategic planning and tactical business execution processes. Our initial category, Decision-Making, will examine the four categories of decision-making (emergency, day-to-day, intermediate-term, and strategic), underlying concepts, and performance best practices and warning flags.

While access to Decision-Making will be limited to registered members, all other categories will remain open to all visitors. StrategyDriven contributors remain committed to updating the open access categories with the high-quality, weekly content on strategic planning and tactical business execution as we have done in the past.

Registration is FREE and registered members gain access to StrategyDriven whitepapers, models, and the Decision-Making category. If you have not already done so, we hope you’ll register today and join our conversation.
