Ross and Segal each have some 20 years of experience working in nonprofit entities in various capacities. Both are currently directors for The Management Centre, the UK's largest nonprofit management consultancy and training organization. Examining their own work and that of others in the nonprofit realm, they identify the strategies and techniques for achieving superior results. Their text is designed to help managers of nongovernmental organizations and nonprofits seeking significant and creative change in their organizations to also achieve such exceptional results. The text is written as a "toolbox" of ideas, so the chapters both stand alone and interconnect to allow for maximum flexibility. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
