Nonprofit leaders must routinely navigate a host of changing and often competing interests. Changes resulting from technological innovations, globalization, and the effects of a devastating recession have challenged organizations to be creative and to do more with fewer resources.  Yet, in a time of great uncertainty, leaders can focus organizational energy and use change as a positive force.
In their book Building Nonprofit Capacity, John Brothers and Anne Sherman offer a guide for capacity building efforts that yield the greatest impact. They help nonprofit leaders determine how to effectively shepherd a change process within their organizations while in the midst of difficult times.  Come learn how to effectively navigate change as these experts on nonprofit development and assessment share their experiences.


  • Proven models, frameworks, and tools to help leaders guide their organizations through change.
  • Effective strategies designed to help you move through change in a thoughtful, structured, and deliberate way.
  • The trajectory of an organizational lifecycle to better understand which areas of focus will yield the greatest impact.
