The increasing complexity and interdependence of international NGOs has brought to the surface concerns not only about performance but about the structural aspects of NGO management at a practical level in the quest for performance maximisation. This brief guidebook offers five different-although complementary-essays that address key questions about NGO management. Topics covered include organisational models, core competencies, NGO organisational structure options, the impact of new IT technologies on performance, and ways to operationalise strategic planning. While directly geared toward NGO management and staff, this book will also be attractive to those thinking of careers in development or potential donors and clients interested in issues of NGO efficiency and performance.

Reviews for Building a Better International NGO: Greater Than the Sum of the Parts?

This booklet presents a fresh, informative, useful and well-meaning analytical framework and comes from a careful reflection and synthesis of hundreds of discussions and meetings with staff trying to understand and resolve the real problems they face. Whilst any analysis is theoretical, this document, because it based on concrete issues and discussions, is also a practical tool. I commend James and Morgana for taking the time to put these papers together and I look forward to applying their suggestions to my own work.
