Corporate Governance in Non Profit Organisationen

Author: Philipp Hirth
Publisher: Springer-Verlag
ISBN: 9783658031299
Release Date: 2013-07-16
Genre: Social Science

Non-Profit-Organisationen (NPO) stehen unter dem besonderen Druck, sowohl ein effizientes Management als auch eine ideelle Verpflichtung auf einen individuellen Organisationszweck zu garantieren. Sie unterwerfen sich daher häufig Standards für Corporate Governance. Einige NPO beziehen sich explizit auf den Deutschen Corporate Governance Kodex, der mit seiner Konzentration auf börsennotierte Unternehmen und deren Ziel der Gewinnmaximierung kaum als Vorbild geeignet scheint. Philipp Hirth zeigt, dass Corporate Governance gerade für NPO ein wertvolles Werkzeug sein kann, um den Ansprüchen der Stakeholder gerecht zu werden. Er identifiziert unterschiedliche Wirkungsdimensionen und Adressaten von Corporate Governance und passt das Konzept für NPO an. Damit schafft er einen theoretisch fundierten und praktisch anwendbaren Zugang für Corporate Governance im Non-Profit-Bereich und zeigt an Hand von Beispielen, wie Corporate Governance in NPO konkret ausgestaltet sein kann.​

The Governance of Public and Non Profit Organizations

Author: Chris Cornforth
Publisher: Routledge
ISBN: 9781134515103
Release Date: 2003-08-29
Genre: Business & Economics

Governing boards play a crucial role in ensuring that public and non-profit organizations are publicly accountable and perform well. Until now, there have been relatively few detailed empirical studies of what boards do in practice, but this book fills that gap by bringing together analyses based upon some of the best recent empirical studies. Using a new theoretical framework that highlights the paradoxical nature of governance, the book throws light on the questions at the heart of recent debates about non-profit boards: are boards publicly accountable or is there a democratic deficit? are boards able to exercise real power, or does management run the show? are boards effective stewards of an organization's resources? what effects are regulatory and other changes designed to improve board effectiveness having? This book will be essential reading for academics and students with an interest in the governance and management of public and non-profit organizations, and will also be of value to policy makers and practitioners who wish to gain a deeper understanding of how boards work and what can be done to improve their performance.

The first volume of the series aims to give an outline of the state of the art and the most recent research being done on public and non profit governance at the international level (with particular emphasis in Europe).

The volume includes two groups of chapters aimed at examining the recent trends and the future directions of the public and non-profit governance research. One group of chapters addresses broad issues of how to conceptualize and research 'governance' in public and non-profit organizations. The second group of chapters deals with recent trends of research on governance mechanisms through empirical studies, including contingency and behavioural studies on public and non-profit boards, studies on participative governance mechanisms such as stakeholder involvement and citizens participation and studies on governance codification.

Nonprofit Governance

Genre: Business & Economics

The current fashion for rolling back the state has seen the nonprofit or third sector playing an increasing role in what were previously the heartlands of the public sphere. The growing significance of the sector and its increasing reliance on public funds mean it has also attracted increased scrutiny. From outside the sector concerns have been raised about the accountability and performance of nonprofit organizations. From within the sector there has been considerable debate about whether the increased reliance on government contracts is in danger of undermining the sector’s independence. As a result the spotlight has fallen on governance arrangements and whether they are adequate to ensure that nonprofit organizations are effective and accountable for their actions, and able to retain their independence. This collection offers a comprehensive assessment of research on the governance of nonprofit organizations. Nonprofit governance research has been dominated by the study of boards of unitary organizations and has paid insufficient attention to the multi-level nature of governance, governance relationships and dynamics, and the contribution of actors other than board members, to governance processes. Drawing on the research of leading scholars in the US, UK, Canada and Australia, this book presents new perspectives on non-profit governance, which help to overcome these weaknesses. Written in an accessible manner the book will be of value to scholars, researchers, students, reflective practitioners and governance consultants and advisers.
