The Virtuous SpiralA guide to sustainability for NGOs in International Development
The Virtuous Spiral offers much-needed practical guidance on how organizations involved in international development can achieve sustainability. It goes beyond conventional approaches by identifying three interdependent conditions: the impact of the work of the organization must be enduring; continuity of funding must be ensured; and the organization itself must remain viable. These facets are interactive and when realised can be mutually reinforcing, leading to a 'virtuous spiral' through which the organisation moves ever-closer towards genuine sustainability. Based on extensive research involving organizations throughout the world, this book offers many practical examples and shows the difficult trade-offs involved. John Hailey, Director of Research, Oxford Brookes University Business School: "This book provides an international perspective on the future of development NGOs and a comprehensive overview of the key issues involved. It successfully demonstrates the link between financial, managerial and wider political issues in determining sustainability."
