From the Inside Flap:

Strengthen Your Nonprofit's Internal Operations and Business Profile—In A Day

In today's environment of increasing litigation and closer public sector scrutiny, your nonprofit needs to develop effective risk management and business continuity plans, two techniques that center on identifying, prioritizing, and dealing with those areas of potential loss or adverse impact within your organization. While these crucial practices have the potential for growing and strengthening the internal structure of your nonprofit, they are often deferred–or avoided–because many nonprofits fear the planning process will take forever, step on toes, or gather dust on a shelf once it is completed.

Straightforward in tone, Nonprofit Risk Management & Contingency Planning: Done in a Day Strategies is the new, painless, and uncomplicated way for your nonprofit to get risk management planning done. With some basic preparation–and a single day devoted to establishing the first edition of your plan–this easy-to-read and easy-to-use tool introduces you to the nuts and bolts of strategic planning and equips you with the structure to engage successfully in a planning process. Two templates are included in the book to speed along the process for the first round of planning. Valuable checklists and worksheets facilitate preparation and forward the action during the session in which the plan is assembled.

Stressing that the nonprofit sector is an industry in its own right, author Peggy Jackson:
