A hands-on risk management playbook for nonprofit leaders, funders, and advisors

In Manage Your Nonprofit for Resilience: Use Lean Risk Management to Improve Performance, Increase Engagement, and Reduce Your Stress, experienced nonprofit risk management expert Ted Bilich delivers a comprehensive and engaging exploration of how to keep your nonprofit vibrant, proactive, and out of trouble.

In the book, you’ll learn how the world’s best charitable organizations employ lean risk management to prioritize, mitigate, and eliminate the most significant risks facing nonprofits today.

Ted teaches you how to develop a risk management cycle and work with risks at the board level, implementing lean risk management tactics incrementally. You’ll also discover:

  • Discussions of fundamental risk management elements
  • Sample compliance checklists, example questions to ask during risk inventories, and common challenges faced by nonprofits in a wide variety of sectors
  • Strategies for confronting nascent risk and issues with radical candor and taking reasonable steps to address them before they spiral out of control

An engaging and essential resource for the managers and directors of nonprofits of all sizes, Manage Your Nonprofit for Resilience belongs on the bookshelves of anyone tasked with shepherding a charitable organization through an increasingly challenging and volatile environment.

We’re here to help. Using risk management and other process improvement tools, Risk Alternatives supports nonprofits as they increase sustainability, identify risks, improve resilience, and gain clarity, peace of mind, and value.
