The 16th issue of NTEN: Change is here: Cultivating Leadership

Submitted by Joleen Ong on Tue, 12/16/2014 - 9:56am

 Change, December 2014

The 16th issue of the NTEN: Change journal is out, focusing on the Best of 2014: Cultivating Leadership.

We launched the first issue of 2014 by planting the seed: How can nonprofits remain competitive, innovative, and responsive to the changing external environment? The inspiration, as reflected on the quarterly NTEN: Change covers, came from farmers, a profession characterized by the need to be responsive. You can't talk about technology implementation without discussing change. Tending to technology needs in today's changing nonprofit landscape requires ongoing cultivation and adaptability.

We've come full circle. Articles and interviews in this issue reflect on 2014, and offer up some important perspectives to take into the New Year. Read the latest issue today!
