Managing a Nonprofit: Roles and Accountabilities of the Chief Executive

  • Identify elements of their organization and management in the organization and their interrelationship
  • Assess which developmental phase the organization is in
  • Identify various accountabilities and talents required by the CEO and organization
  • Assess the organization's general performance and collective talent needs required for improved performance
  • Identify tools to support the board in carrying out its role
