Management skills for effective organisations

Community-based organisations (CBOs) play an important and relevant role in providing services at the local level.

Wise management of the organisation can contribute significantly to ensuring the effectiveness of the work that it does.

This notebook provides comprehensive definitions of what organisations are, what a CBO is and what management is. It highlights management skills, different types and functions of managers and aspects that ensure the effectiveness of the organisation.
