Practical Project Management for Agile Nonprofits introduces the reader to the basic concepts of project management. It provides dozens of approaches and templates to help nonprofit managers quickly implement practices to help them manage their limited resources, both financial and volunteer. The book emphasizes using appropriate project management practices, those that are not burdensome but rather agile in their approach. In keeping with this theme, the book explores how social media can be used to assist in the management of time-sensitive projects. Readers will learn how to apply just enough project management to: • Be an active leader and a superior project manager • Respond with agility to change and the unexpected • Focus your efforts on what truly matters • Recruit and engage a new generation of volunteers • Build a framework that ensures project success • Keep all stakeholders involved with the project satisfied The book also addresses nonprofit governance and shows how project portfolio management can be used to assist in communicating with boards of directors and other governing entities when crucial resource decisions need to be made. Development office managers can easily implement portfolio management to facilitate the assignment of volunteers and to visually portray project activities to stakeholders. Finally, real-world case studies on project planning, portfolio management, and volunteer-managed projects will demonstrate how others have achieved project success.
