Performance Measures for Nonprofits — John Scott, NESC
National Executive Service Corps (NESC), is a nonprofit professional services organization that provides management consulting, executive search and business advisory services to the nonprofit and public sectors in the tri-state area.
During recent NESC assignments, it came to our attention that funders were requiring our clients to demonstrate their performance, using “outcome-based” performance measures. This presentation reflects on the insights received from nonprofits and funders. It focuses on the extent to which nonprofits are being asked for “outcome-based” performance measures, the challenges of introducing these measures, and the approaches nonprofits are using to address these requests.
