The Many Faces of Nonprofit Accountability

This document created by Harvard Business School provides an overview of the accountability

pressures facing non-profit leaders, and examines several mechanisms available to them: disclosures, performance evaluations, self-regulation, participation, and adaptive learning. Non-profit leaders must adapt any such mechanisms to suit their organization — be it a membership-based organization, a service-delivery non-profit, or an advocacy network.
