Abstract

An array of large-scale social changes in education, technology, and value orientations has recently fostered dramatic growth in stakeholders’ potential to participate in key organizational decision-making processes. The increasing interest, opportunity, and ability of stakeholders to make decisions is bringing about significant changes in prevailing nonprofit organizational structures, in organizational governance and decision-making, and in management and leadership practices. A genuine participatory revolution is emerging – and nonprofit leaders must be ready for both the opportunities and challenges it presents.

Keywords: nonprofit management, nonprofit organizations, stakeholder participation
