Program Management & Effectiveness
Effective Nonprofits have programs that are well run and managed. There is a shared understanding and agreement within the organization about how the programs and activities will achieve the organization’s vision, mission and goals. Effectiveness is evaluated for impact against the organization’s vision for change and indicators of success. Evaluation data is analyzed and incorporated in ongoing program development and improvement.
