In recent years numerous non-profit organizations (NPOs) have made considerable improvements in the planning and control of their organizations. Operational management has evolved significantly with respect to instruments used and management effectiveness. Today, management is considered more generally as target-oriented decision-making beyond making profits. Thus, the contradiction between NPOs and management no longer exists. The IGC work group headed by Professor Bernd Halfar provides in this publication a guideline to impact-oriented and results-based controlling in NPOs. Objective setting, making objectives measureable and clear, and strategic decision making as a starting point for any controller in NPOs is the focus of the publication. Through consistent objectives controllers are able to measure and control the effects of management decisions. For this purpose a new and unique "spider model" was developed. The model is intended to make the complexity of goal setting, planning and control with regard to the variety of stakeholders in NPOs clearer in order to deal with this complexity even more successfully in everyday practice.
