Book Description

May 1 2002 1853838470 978-1853838477
In the last ten years, NGOs have become a force for transformation in global politics and economics. Their numbers and size have grown dramatically and they have assumed far more extensive responsibilities as intermediaries between governments, businesses and other institutions, and local communities and citizens. With this growth has come an ever-more pressing requirement for effective management among NGOs and their operations. Focusing on development organizations working on issues of poverty and injustice, but relevant to NGOs in all sectors, this volume brings together a selection of key writings on how NGOs can position and organize themselves to achieve maximum impact and effectiveness. The editors set out the management challenges facing NGOs in a stimulating introduction followed by a range of contributions divided into ten sets of issues.

5.0 out of 5 stars should be required reading in business schools Nov. 28 2006
By Byron Reimus - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A primer on how to start an NGO that ends up doing a better job of explaining some of what's behind the explosion of activism in recent years than anything else out there that I have come across. Anyone interested in this subject-- from academics and students, to business executives, public policy makers and journalists--will find this book highly informative and insightful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Insightful Dec 1 2010
By F. Cazares - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book was purchased for a course I had taken about NGO's and while I rarely have written reviews about texts purchased for classes I felt this one was a special exception. It is incredibly insightful and provides a great look into the world of NGO's and how they operate. A great read if you're interested in the subject.
