    Managing the Nonprofit Organization by Peter F. Drucker addresse

    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.

    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.

    I 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. I 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.

    All the Best,
    Nathan Ives
    StrategyDriven Principal

    An Invaluable Handbook for any Nonprofit Professional

    Recently, I've taken a seventeen-year business in a philanthropic direction and found Peter Drucker's book, Managing the Nonprofit Organization, to be instructive and invaluable. As he succinctly conveys--to have success with any mission--requires clarity, commitment, and responsibility. - Loretta Neff
