Abstract

In this literature review, we take advantage of analyzing nonprofit leadership teams rather than its components, such as the board, the executive management or specific committees. Within this perspective, we define the concept of ‘nonprofit leadership alignment’. We combine different bodies of literature which we structure under three headings: (1) functional alignment, (2) motivational alignment, and (3) practices alignment. For each of them we indicate important avenues for further research. Finally, we provide three methodological paths that could be used to investigate the avenues proposed.

Keywords: nonprofit leadership alignment, functions, motivation, practices, governance
