    Most for-profit businesses are fair to mediocre. To simply copy any for-profit business is not going to ensure success. First and foremost, nonprofits need to know what success is and identify those organizations, both for-profit and nonprofit, that are the best in the breed. Using the framework from the business classic, Good to Great and the Social Sectors, participants will learn how to define and measure “Great”, get the right people on the bus, create a culture of discipline, and build a sustainable organization.


    Presenters: Nancy Hall and Deb Jung, 501(c)Solutions
