Governing, leading, and managing nonprofit organizations : new insights from research and practice by Dennis R Young( Book )

13 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and Undetermined and held by 516 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Of singular concern to nonprofit organizations today are the problems of governance and management. As demonstrated in recent, highly publicized cases and in small, quiet crises across the nation, how an organization is run and who has the responsibility for it are questions of fundamental importance. Drawing on management research and inquiries into the nature of voluntary organizations, this volume provides insights into how managers, board members, and other leaders in the nonprofit sector can meet the pressing challenges of governance and management, and lead their organizations with informed vision and renewed purpose." "A publication of INDEPENDENT SECTOR, this book identifies what is unique about leadership in the nonprofit sector, and outlines what can be adapted and applied to nonprofit organizations from management research and practices developed in the business and public sectors. Governing, Leading, and Managing Nonprofit Organizations brings together leading scholars, researchers, and managers in the field to chart new directions for nonprofit management theory and practice in such areas as board structure and functions, board/staff relations, the mission of nonprofits, volunteer recruitment and retention, resource development and management, management for social change, and public policy issues that affect the management of nonprofit organizations."--Jacket

Handbook of research on nonprofit economics and management by Bruce A Seaman( Book )

29 editions published between 2009 and 2020 in English and held by 375 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Building on the success of the first edition, this thoroughly revised and expanded edition explores (1) areas of general agreement from previous research; (2) areas of conflicting results and unexplored questions; (3) the relative roles of theory, data availability and empirical analysis in explaining gaps in our knowledge; and (4) what must be done to improve our knowledge and extend the literature. Selected original chapters addressing especially challenging topics include the value of risk management to nonprofit decision-making; nonprofit wages theory and evidence; the valuation of volunteer labor; property tax exemption for non-profits; when is competition good for the third sector; product diversification and social enterprise; international perspectives; the application of experimental research; and the macroeconomic effects of the nonprofit sector. This book is a valuable resource for academics, but the concerns of nonprofit sector managers and decision-makers are also addressed, making it a useful reference for practitioners as well

Civil society, the third sector and social enterprise : governance and democracy by Jean-Louis Laville( )

9 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 162 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Civil society organizations are playing a key role in addressing global societal and ecological issues, often setting the agenda for public discourse. Therefore, at a time when they are becoming more varied and interwoven than ever, critical analysis of the governance of these organizations and networks, and their role in a democratic society, is particularly important. This book addresses these challenges by revisiting concepts of citizenship, public participation, democratic exchange of ideas, markets, co-construction and co-production of public services, and alternative political ideologies. The first part of the book focuses on internal governance and the economic dimensions of civil society organizations and analyzes the growing role of management models. The second part addresses the institutional dimensions and focuses public spaces and the capacity of civil society organizations to resist, collaborate and negotiate with the state. This book is unique in bringing together different visions and perspectives on civil society governance for the first time and will be of interest to an international audience of researchers and policy-makers"--
