In this survey, more than 3,000 stakeholders from the nonprofit sector—including nonprofit executives and staff, board members, and donors—provided detailed information about the leadership and management practices of a nonprofit organization with which they are involved. William F. Meehan III and Kim Starkey Jonker oversaw this survey to inform research for their book, Engine of Impact: Essentials of Strategic Leadership in the Nonprofit Sector. “This comprehensive survey generated highly informative empirical data that highlights our observations from decades of experience in the sector,” explains Meehan.
