Lessons for Successful Nonprofit Governance

By Peter F. Drucker

Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs (JCPA), 1999

In this chapter of Board-Staff Relations for the 21st Century, the author provides some common advice for the area of non-profit governance. He focuses on the need for a clear and functioning governance structure. The author also adds that having an effective board and executive is important, but some nonprofits may not accept that both are needed. The author concludes by asserting that not all nonprofit institutions need to be managed like businesses.
