Transition Into the NonProfit Sector
For individuals who've spent most of their career in the for profit corporate world, transitioning to the non profit sector can be quite a challenge as there is a big paradigm change in organizational culture and workplace dynamics. It's important to understand that non profits are mission-focused vs. revenue-focused and that there would need to be an adjustment in how to measure the success of the organization. Non profits are typically constrained with financial resources as they depend on grants, program fees and donations to cover expenses. Additionally, non profits are typically slower to make decisions as they are more process-oriented with a board of directors. This can be frustrating to individuals from the for profit industry where decisions are typically made much more quickly based upon financial data. With the differences between the corporate, for profit world and the non profit arena, it's important to consider these specific factors into consideration before transitioning into the non-profit sector.
