To improve the effectiveness of a nonprofit organization, especially during difficult economic times, senior executives and board members must first determine current performance. Performance Measurement for Effective Management of Nonprofit Organizations (PMNO)—a joint program presented by the HBS Social Enterprise Initiative and Harvard University's Hauser Center for Nonprofit Organizations—explores the impact of measurement on resource allocation, organizational learning, internal processes, and internal and external accountability.
PMNO shows nonprofit leaders how to use organizational performance measurement to enhance the organization's ability to deliver on its mission. To address today's complex challenges, the program examines a range of effective approaches to help guide your organization in any economy.
Through classroom exercises, group discussions, and individual coursework, you will examine the rationale behind nonprofit performance management and conceptualize a new performance measurement and management system for your organization.
Designed for CEOs, presidents, executive directors, board members, and other senior executives in the nonprofit sector who are committed to implementing effective performance measurement and management systems, this leadership training program is suited to individuals, as well as teams.
The Hauser Center aims to illuminate the vital role that the nonprofit sector and nongovernmental organizations play in aiding societies to discover and accomplish important public purposes.
By integrating social enterprise-related research, teaching, and activities into daily life at HBS, the Social Enterprise Initiative plays a critical role in supporting the School's mission to educate leaders who make a difference in the world.
