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.
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.
