Good Governance for Nonprofits: Developing Principles and Policies for an Effective Board (USED)

Good Governance for Nonprofits: Developing Principles and Policies for an Effective Board (USED)

$9.99
More Info

Many nonprofits are reluctant to develop a policies manual, believing that it takes far too much time, effort, and expertise. But the lack of responsible policies and governance can actually end up costing an organization much more in the long run -- both in reputation and in resources.

Good Governance for Nonprofits is a succint but thorough guide that will help organizations develop a board that is legally and ethically responsible and effective in advancing their needs. The authors offer a clear process for creating a policies manual to help boards apply proven standards of governance or "attributes of excellence." Now even with limited resources, nonprofit leaders will learn how to:

* eliminate redundant or outdated policies

* add new policies more effectively

* clearly guide the CEO and evaluate his or her performance

* ensure compliance with relevant legislation and regulations

* understand why certain policies should be included

* adapt the authors' templates to their specific needs.

According to one of America's boldest contrarians, Harry Dent, an exciting new era of expanding prosperity is just around the corner. Instead of endorsing today's conventional wisdom that the current recession will completely color the economic picture of the '90s, Dent, an outstanding trend spotter, predicts the greatest boom in the history of America will soon be upon us and he provides the tools to capitalize on the strategies and techniques he has successfully used with leading-edge companies around the world. Visionary and provocative, Dent asserts that the 1990s and the early years of the 21st century will be remembered for their unprecedented boom years rather than their early recessionary period. He gives a specific timetable for the economic trends he predicts, calling highs and lows in interest rates, inflation, and the stock market. In his daring and broadsweeping analysis, Dent documents the impact the waves of maturing baby boomers will have on all aspects of American life. With their vast spending power, innovative thinking, and creation of a new customized economy, the boomers' extraordinary numbers will create the earliest economic and business changes in North America. As it shifts into a high-gear expansion, the United States with its dominant numbers of baby boomers will regain its leadership position in world markets. Harry Dent forgoes the traditional tools of economic forecasting - government managed interest rates, imports and exports, the deficit, unemployment statistics, the money supply - and has instead created simple, reliable tools that anybody can use. You will be able to learn for yourself what will be happening in the economy and how to use the results tomake informed decisions in your business, your work, and your personal investments. Create your own economic program for adapting to boom times as you learn what to do about preferred portfolios, specific types of stocks to invest in; growth markets of the 1990s, major social an

Following his blockbuster biography of Steve Jobs, The Innovators is Walter Isaacson's revealing story of the people who created the computer and the Internet. It is destined to be the standard history of the digital revolution and an indispensable guide to how innovation really happens.

What were the talents that allowed certain inventors and entrepreneurs to turn their visionary ideas into disruptive realities? What led to their creative leaps? Why did some succeed and others fail?

In his masterly saga, Isaacson begins with Ada Lovelace, Lord Byron's daughter, who pioneered computer programming in the 1840s. He explores the fascinating personalities that created our current digital revolution, such as Vannevar Bush, Alan Turing, John von Neumann, J.C.R. Licklider, Doug Engelbart, Robert Noyce, Bill Gates, Steve Wozniak, Steve Jobs, Tim Berners-Lee, and Larry Page.

This is the story of how their minds worked and what made them so inventive. It's also a narrative of how their ability to collaborate and master the art of teamwork made them even more creative.

For an era that seeks to foster innovation, creativity, and teamwork, The Innovators shows how they happen.
