Leading and Governing High Performing Nonprofit Organizations

Course Syllabus Focus

Nonprofit Sector
Grossman, Allen

Leading and Governing High Performing Nonprofit Organizations (LGN) is about the leadership challenges of creating and sustaining high performance in nonprofit organizations. The operating environment for nonprofit organizations is changing as dynamically as that of the for-profit sector. Yet, the knowledge of how to effectively manage nonprofits to high performance is, in many cases, just being formulated. This course explores the challenges of attaining high performance and provides management approaches for achieving it. LGN will also examine the applicability, as well as the limitations, of for-profit business approaches to nonprofit organizational challenges and identify innovative solutions. In the process, students will expand their knowledge of effective nonprofit management practices and increase their understanding of the complex environment in which nonprofit organizations operate.
