Jan recognized that many organizations in the nonprofit sector were facing dire financial and organizational challenges but that the sector was lacking adequate transparency and benchmarking for how to turn around organizations.  As a foundational partner and safety net in many communities, the health of nonprofit organizations is critical to civic stability.  Jan’s book addresses these challenges and can be a good place to start for organizational leaders facing the abyss.
