In this week’s readings, Salamon identifies a number of risks that may lie ahead for nonprofits if current trends continue largely as they have to date. These challenges include fiscal risks, competition, organization effectiveness, legitimacy, human resources, and technology. In 2013, Goodwill Industries came under fire because of the company’s practices of paying disabled workers well under minimum wage. Their practices are legal, but human resources challenges could exist with turnover, due to low wages. However, they could also face fiscal risks if they pay workers too much. As a leader, you must consider many risks when setting a strategic direction.
To prepare for this Discussion, review Salamon’s identified risks.
By Day 3
Post your assessment of Salamon’s identified risks that have the greatest potential impact to nonprofit organizations. Which of these, from your perspective, are more important or potentially problematic? What are less relevant or, maybe, not at all relevant? Justify your response.
