Management for Nonprofit Organizations.
Published by John Wiley, co-authored with Jo
Ann Hankin and Alan Seidner, 2007 (now in 6th printing), it is available through John Wiley or
Amazon, either as a book or an e-book. The
previous edition of this
guidebook received the Terry McAdam award in 1999
by the Alliance for Nonprofit Management for the book contributing most to the practice of nonprofit management.
This book is updated and significantly revised,
including a new chapter on nonprofit accounting and a
new chapter on liquidity management. The two main
emphases which distinguish this book from others in the
field are the twin focuses on policies and practices.

quote from Peter Drucker, Barron's, 12/18/2000,
Peter Drucker, the nonagenarian
management guru, [stated] in a 1999 interview with
Philanthropy magazine. "Far too many nonprofits believe
that good intentions are sufficient," he said. "They
lack the discipline -- the imposed discipline of the
bottom line." Drucker... further observed, "Nonprofits
today are probably pretty much where American business
was in the late 1940s, with a few outstandingly
effective, well-managed companies, and the great bulk of
them at a very low level. In the business world, the
average has risen dramatically. Yet today, the vast
majority of nonprofits are not so much badly managed as
not managed at all."
