The increasing complexity and interdependence of international NGOs has brought to the surface concerns not only about performance but about the structural aspects of NGO management at a practical level in the quest for performance maximization. This brief guidebook offers five differentalthough complementaryessays that address key questions about NGO management. Topics covered include organizational models, core competencies, NGO organizational structure options, the impact of new IT technologies on performance, and ways to operationalize strategic planning. While directly geared toward NGO management and staff, this book will also be attractive to those thinking of careers in development or potential donors and clients interested in issues of NGO efficiency and performance.
