Editor reviews

An anthology of advice for non-profits, Five Good Ideas offers community-based organizations the tools they need to keep pace in an economy that favors big business and competition. This guidebook is the result of collaboration between numerous nonprofit and NGO experts from a diverse array of organizations, each with unique means and goals. As such, it offers both general and specific strategies on such wide ranging topics as governance, information technology development, budget optimization, unionization, and branding strategies. Exuding the very qualities espoused herein, silky baritone John Morgan delivers these pearls of wisdom with fluidity, confidence, and optimism. Chiming in with five-point programs along the way, performer Kimberly Farr presents heady and nuanced organizational strategies with clear diction and careful pacing.

Summary

Non-profits are big business. As the sector expands to embrace new issues, there is increased pressure for accountability, relevancy, and efficiency. Practitioners are expected to be experts in a variety of fields. In Five Good Ideas, 40 professionals from successful nonprofits large and small offer information, strategies for action, and management solutions that are easy to implement and will improve how organizations function.

Alan Broadbent is the chair of Avana Capital, Tides Canada Foundation, and Maytree, and is the author of Urban Nation.

Ratna Omidvar is the president of Maytree and is The Globe and Mail's 2010 Nation Builder of the Decade for Citizenship.

Some good ideas, but the focus is on Canada

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

The book is ok. Some good ideas, but the focus is on Canada law and practice.
