The Five Most Important Questions You Will Ask About Your Nonprofit

If you lead a nonprofit organization, the one hour it will take you to read Peter F. Drucker’s book, The Five Most Important Questions You Will Ever Ask About Your Organization, will be well worth it.

  • This book may fundamentally change the way you work and lead your organization.

Perhaps one of most challenging questions Drucker asks the reader is:

Do we produce results that are sufficiently outstanding for us to justify putting our resources in this area?

Because, Drucker argues that need alone does not justify continuing. Nor does tradition, if your results are not sufficiently outstanding.

If you volunteer for a nonprofit or are seeking employment at a nonprofit, this book is also an insightful and inspiring read.
