Many Western governments are becoming more involved with the nonprofit sector; a sector in which the organizations are often ill-prepared and strategically unaligned to fulfill the new role that is increasingly being asked of them.
Based on his original research, John Brothers and leading thought leaders from the United States and around the world explore the prevailing attitudes and perceptions of the nonprofit sector towards government and vice versa. Their experience combines to provide advice and direction helping both sides towards effective collaborative working. The main themes cover the nature and implications of regulatory reform on the sector and how non-government organizations should reengineer their practices. Chapters include government contracting and political advocacy, and contain best-practice examples, case studies, tools and templates from across the sectors.
Fast-track education on each other’s capabilities, constraints and working practice is needed. Rebalancing Public Partnership provides valuable perspectives and insights to inform and direct this process.
