While virtually all nonprofit organizations face the same array of evolving issues -from economic pressures to changing demographics -how they respond to these challenges can separate well-performing institutions from those deemed just "average" in their peer group.
Like any top performing service provider, to be competitive in today's world often begins with management and trustees working in concert to achieve mutually agreed upon goals with open communication, clear roles and responsibilities, and a well-defined course of action.
"Perhaps the area of highest impact for many nonprofit entities is their ability to foster a collaborative environment that combines vision with checks and balances," says Howard Foote
, a partner with UHY LLP and a trustee at a private liberal arts college. "Without effective management and board conduct, all the other virtues of an institution -mission integrity, state-of-the-art research programs and consistent focus -will become eroded."
