Abstract

The purview of the nonprofit sector is to identify key trends and provide viable solutions in order to increase the efficiency and effectiveness within their organizational structure. Two recent trends include leadership and financial stability, which helps to strengthen social change value and social outcomes. These are desirable results in any nonprofit organization. The qualitative researcher can assess the needs of the nonprofit sector and produce quality research through credibility, accuracy, and reasonableness. The case study method has proven to be effective in helping the researcher gain a holistic approach to understanding the participants’ mission through unstructured interviews. The role of the researcher is to maintain credibility with an objectivity that will not skew the research. The researcher can demonstrate passion, but control bias through questions that help to gain an understanding of the participants’ mission, as well as create solutions that can help them transcend it for years to come. The researcher’s current research project will help to add new knowledge to the professional and academic communities but also add a leg to the wheel that already exists within the nonprofit sector.

The purview of the nonprofit sector is to identify key trends and provide viable solutions in order to increase the efficiency and effectiveness within their organizational structure. Two recent trends include leadership and financial stability, which helps to strengthen social change value and social outcomes. These are desirable results in any nonprofit organization. The qualitative researcher can assess the needs of the nonprofit sector and produce quality research through credibility, accuracy, and reasonableness. The case study method has proven to be effective in helping the researcher gain a holistic approach to understanding the participants’ mission through unstructured interviews. The role of the researcher is to maintain credibility with an objectivity that will not skew the research. The researcher can demonstrate passion, but control bias through questions that help to gain an understanding of the participants’ mission, as well as create solutions that can help them transcend it for years to come. The researcher’s current research project will help to add new knowledge to the professional and academic communities but also add a leg to the wheel that already exists within the nonprofit sector.
