Board Members' Involvement in Nonprofit Governance

McDonald, Catherine (1993) Board Members' Involvement in Nonprofit Governance. [Working Paper]

Abstract

Over the past decade, the nonprofit sector has vigorously engaged in developing its management capacity and expertise, resulting in part in the growth of normative literature devoted to excellence in nonprofit management. However, doubts have been expressed about the empirical and theoretical basis of this literature (Fink, 1989., Middleton, 1987, 1991). Furthermore, while advice directed specifically at the management of and functioning of voluntary boards is developing, again it is primarily prescriptive as opposed to empirical (Chait and Taylor, 1989, Drucker, 1990).

Impact and interest:

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
