Nonprofit managers often focus on mastering the core competencies that are part of their jobs: fund raising, financial management, board development, and leadership. However, in being so function driven, the field as a whole is perceived by those in it and those working with them as a collection of independent tasks, rather than a whole job. The implicit message is that, unlike in the for-profit sector, there should only be managers with narrow areas of focus, not wide-ranging executives. If there is no one the nonprofit manager can turn to for assistance -- a common problem for many in this position -- this book will provide the tools for individual and organizational development.
