In Building Nonprofit Capacity: A Guide for Managing Change Through Organizational Lifecycles (Jossey-Bass, 2011), John Brothers and Anne Sherman present a nonprofit organization’s evolution from adolescence, impact expansion, and decline to (either) turnaround or closing. They compare nonprofits that expand quickly, high arc, with those that grow steadily over time, low arc, to demonstrate how to survive the decline phase (and turnaround) will require different strategies depending on the organization’s expansion model. Lively interviews with nonprofit entrepreneurs, founders, and directors provide an interesting array of success stories and cautionary tales. Perhaps best of all is how they demonstrate ways to keep board members connected to the work and staff, as well as maintain a passion for the mission, through the nonprofit’s changing lifecycles. Among their useful insights is “founder’s syndrome… not just for founders anymore.”
