A two-day seminar with Dr. Robert Penna, author of the book The Nonprofit Outcomes Toolbox: A Complete Guide to Program Effectiveness, Performance Measurement, and Results. This complex and difficult training has been expertly crafted by Dr. Penna so non-profit administrators and managers can integrate the practice into their day to day management styles with simple and focused steps. This seminar is not about inputs and outputs for non-profits; it concentrates on long-term outcomes. At this event we had nonprofit organizations from Laredo, Nuevo Laredo, Monterrey, and Saltillo.
