1. Discussion Post 1 Due: Applying Organizational Theories of the Nonprofit Sector

Are you ready to begin:

Tremblay-Boire & Prakash’s Article discusses how various theoretical perspectives can be used to understand the purposes and functions of nonprofit organizations. They cite several theories of the relationship between for-profit and nonprofit organizations, and between government and nonprofits. 
Discuss why you believe so many social functions in the U.S. are performed by nonprofit organizations, rather than by government or for-profit firms, and what the consequences (both positive and negative) might be if more social services were provided by nonprofits rather than another type of organization.

Enjoy the discussion topic.

3. Discussion Post 2 Due: The Structural Frame

1. Let’s begin:

2. One of the themes of these chapters is the need for organizations to remain flexible and open to change in the face of changing environmental restructuring. Still, all organizations need to maintain some level of control over their functioning. What do you see are the advantages and disadvantages of restructuring, and what team configuration would work best for your organization. 

3. Hope you find the topic of interest.
