As a nonprofit, you need to manage a lot of moving pieces, often juggling competing priorities such as obtaining funding and resources while simultaneously fulfilling your mission. Every dollar needs to be stretched to the max, creating a tangible impact and thereby justifying further funding from donors & funders.
Many management schools of thought don’t often take these considerations in mind – they tend to have rather linear thinking. It’s only when we realize that organizations and charities exist as “a system”, with important and complex dynamics to consider, that management can start to look at things differently. In this session, join Alexia as she digs deeper into the role of managers as part of this “system”. Through tangible advice on running both day-to-day workloads and special projects, Alexia will help you understand how to further your core mission and avoid common management pitfalls (checklist included).
