Succeeding with Consultants
Self-Assessment for the Changing Nonprofit
Authors Barbara Kibbe and Fred Setterberg explain how the appropriate use of consultants can generate exciting methods of forwarding your organization's goals. "A good consultant," they write, "will offer you advice, perspective, tools, inspiration, skills, and time you don't have to help you solve your own problems." The book covers six different areas in which you might benefit from the advice of a consultant: governance, planning, fund development, financial management, public relations and marketing, and quality assurance. Before you hire a consultant, read this excellent guide.
