This unique volume provides new perspectives on assessing the performance of nonprofit organizations whilst meeting the information needs of decision-makers, both internal (such as resource-providers, regulators and clients), and external (including boards, managers, staff and volunteers).
Whilst most discussions of accountability focus exclusively on financial accountability, this title offers a significant contribution to a relatively untouched area by combining the treatment of both evaluation and accountability from a managerial perspective.
With increased interest in the concept that nonprofit organizations must be accountable, this topical volume fills a gap in the literature that postgraduates and scholars of business studies and management will find invaluable.
