Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0335196217, Paperback)

This is a book about how voluntary organizations cope with the relentless demands of change - the 'contract culture', service delivery, the 'professionalization' of the voluntary sector, the 'new managerialism'. It focuses on the needs of voluntary organizations as they confront the absorption of their provision into mainstream care services; the need to adopt business methods in their internal organization and external relationships; and the development of policies and procedures to ensure the provision of quality services. Nigel Gann provides many examples of good working practice, as well as an exploration of the key issues involved in 'quality' management.

Managing Change in Voluntary Organizations examines:

* What must be the characteristics of management within the modern service culture

* How voluntary organizations can protect the ethics of 'voluntariness', while competing with the private and public sectors in the market-place

* What policies and procedures a voluntary organization can adopt in order to ensure a quality service to its clients

* What a voluntary organization must do in order to survive and prosper in the twenty-first century

Trustees, paid workers and volunteers will find the book of practical value, while the national and long-term implications of change in the voluntary sector will be of concern to local authorities, students of social policy and organizational behaviour, and others concerned with the privatization of care services.
