Summary: Britain's 'third sector' the many organizations that are not profitmaking and are motivated by social rather than economic objectives is continually expanding. However, little has been written about how they should be managed. In this pioneering book, Mike Hudson, management consultant and founder of Compass Partnership, draws on the experiences of organizations ranging from Amnesty international to the Royal Nacional Theatre, from Mencap to Oxfam, to demonstrate how to: • Develop strong and suitably constituted boards to govern, while delegating day-to-day management to chief executives and staff • Use strategic management techniques to build commitment and reconcile the interests of funders and service users • Develop a mission, clarify objectives and overcorne common dilemmas • Make management processes - for personnel, planning and performance monitoring - work • Manage people, as individuals and teams, through supervision, delegation and development • Let chief executives lead, divisional directors direct and managers manage Informative and practical, this book will be of immense value to all third sector governors, managers and funders.
