Overview

In keeping with increasing professionalism in nonprofits Michael O'Neill and Dennis R. Young have as editors produced a book, Educating Managers of Nonprofit Organizations, that seeks the best ways to educate the persons who are rising to the top in charitable enterprises. Apprenticeships still retain a high value, say some of the contributors to the book, but they are not often practical. Nonprofit management as an academic specialty is considered at length, and on-the-job course work is examined. In the course of the discussion the management of nonprofits is carefully dissected, and some of its most troublesome areas are revealed. LRC Newsbrief

Educating Managers of Non-Profit Organizations examines the question of how to most productively train managers for these complex and diverse organizations whose non-profit basis makes them unsuited to many of the traditional business programs. The presentations are broad-based yet detailed, making this volume valuable to a wide range of readers: managers and policy-makers of non-profit organizations, scholars of managerial education, management program funders, consulting and technical service groups, as well as non-profit organization leaders. The editors have assembled 15 papers from highly prestigious scholars, practitioners, and researchers to present a clear and thorough coverage of the topic. Included are expert articles discussing: the types of non-profit managers; curricula for such managers; differences between non-profit and traditional organizations; the non-profit organization's place in higher education.
