From the Inside Flap:

The idea of social entrepreneurship is becoming increasingly popular as nonprofit leaders search for new ways to serve their missions and generate funds for their organizations. In their book Enterprising Nonprofits, the authors offered new ways to apply the lessons of business entrepreneurship to social enterprises. This book enriches the toolkit offered in the first book by providing additional tools for thinking strategically about value creation, income generation, and growth.

Strategic Tools for Social Entrepreneurs focuses on improving your entrepreneurial effectiveness. It integrates the latest thinking on business entrepreneurship with the very best ideas about nonprofit management in a practical and accessible package that requires no prior business training. It includes interviews with many of today?s most successful social entrepreneurs and profiles of highly effective enterprising nonprofits. It also presents real-world models for applying the book?s concepts to your nonprofit?s day-to-day management and strategic positioning.

The goal of the social entrepreneur is to make the world a better place, and you can do that more effectively with Strategic Tools for Social Entrepreneurs. Using these tools, forward-thinking nonprofit leaders can be more enterprising and have greater positive, long-term impact in their chosen fields. All the fundamental issues of social entrepreneurship are discussed, including ways to create value strategically, grow in new directions, and manage your changing organization.

In addition to contributions from the three lead authors, you?ll benefit from the advice of thinkers at the forefront of this emerging and dynamic field, including:

  • Jerry Kitzi, President, Social Venture Partners of Greater Kansas City
  • James L. Heskett, Professor Emeritus, Harvard Business School
  • Kay Sprinkel Grace, organizational consultant
  • Shirley Brice Heath, Professor, Stanford University
  • Fay Twersky, founding Principal, BTW Consultants-informing change
  • Jill Blair, founding Principal, BTW Consultants-informing change
  • Beth Battle Anderson, Senior Research Associate, The Fuqua School of Business, Duke University
  • Melissa A. Taylor, doctoral candidate, Martin School of Public Policy and Administration, University of Kentucky
  • Betty Henderson Wingfield, Senior Consultant, Executive Development Associates
  • Steve Roling, Senior Vice President, Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation

Exercises, checklists, and action steps allow you to tailor these concepts to your specific needs while remaining true to your founding vision. Whether you?re a nonprofit CEO, board member, staffer, or volunteer, the world-class guidance presented in this volume will help you recognize and pursue new opportunities to serve your mission best?through innovation, adaptation, and learning.
