Sustaining non-profit organisations and their impact
by Graeme Reekie
It may be ostensibly written for a non-profit audience, but entrepreneurs everywhere could benefit from the business lessons and tools in Graeme Reekie’s new book.
Making a Lasting Difference provides clear guidance and practical tools to help every non-profit organisation assess and understand their strengths and challenges.
With advice on topics such as income generation and how to ensure a holistic approach to raising revenue, as well as assessing whether your systems and structures inhibit or encourage innovation and improvement, there are valuable takeaway lessons for start-ups. The book also has helpful tools and strategies to help you get the most out people – be they customers, communities, staff, board members and partners.
These core interrelated capabilities are the foundation stones of a healthy organisation and will help small businesses ensure they have the capacity to fulfil their mission, remain sustainable, and make a lasting difference.
