More About This Title Practical Project Management for Agile Nonprofits


Axiom Business Book Bronze Award Winner - 2015.

Nonprofit organizations are suffering from the continuing economic downturn. Donations are decreasing while demand for services is growing, forcing these organizations to be increasingly efficient and effective with their funds. This book introduces the reader to the basic concepts of project management. It provides approaches and templates to help nonprofit managers quickly implement practices to help them manage their limited resources, both financial and volunteer. The book also provides a tool to help the project team determine which practices are most appropriate. The book explores how social media and other technology tools can be used to assist in the management of time-sensitive projects and shows how project portfolio management can be a tool to assist in communications with boards of directors and other governing entities. The project portfolio is a tool that development office managers can easily implement and adopt to facilitate resource assignment. Finally, the book offers three case studies of nonprofit projects that went awry and shows how project management would have assisted.
