How Clear Are You?
Views from the Field. Decision-Making at Non-Profits.
Non-profit organizations benefit from a cadre of hard-working, dedicated professionals. Despite the talent and experience in this mission-driven sector, many non-profit organizations are not as efficient or effective as they could be. What is it that holds many organizations back from reaching their full potential and making the impact they wish to achieve?

CommongoodCareers and Scheier & Barber +Group (formerly Scheier + Group) conducted a survey to ask the staff members of non-profit organizations these very questions. The survey, administered in July and August of 2010, was promoted through the CommongoodCareers website and email newsletters. Survey participants answered between 16 and 19 questions about career planning and decision making in non-profit organizations.

“At GreatSchools, we’ve benefitted a great deal from the Decision Clarity process. Our work with [Scheier+Group] has shown us that we have not always been clear about which staff members should make which decisions and this has elongated our decision-making processes. [Scheier+Group] has helped us figure out how to achieve improvements in our decision-making so that we can unlock the full potential of our staff. We are a much stronger organization as a result.”  Bill Jackson, former CEO of Great Schools
