Better Charity Management
Author: Harry Stone
Paperback - 234 x 156mm -180pp - £14.99 - 1-85252-441-3 - 2003
This fascinating new book lifts the lid on the way that many charities are run and organised, with their managements entirely grown from within and lacking commercial acumen. Other charities have seen the value of taking experienced managers and executives from the highly competitive commercial world, and using their skills and expertise to great and profitable effect.
The book recognises that a charity has no measurable product and is hard to analyse in terms of conventional management precepts, and so is set out in four precise sectors based around the people involved and the jobs they have to do. It defines what local inspectors may find fault with and what the accountants expect. It contains some controversial and even unorthodox opinions - bound to stir up debate.
Included is a detailed and cross-referenced index making it very simple for charity managers and others to find and evaluate the highly effective systems and processes explained.
