ABSTRACT
This Independent Learning Project (ILP) was focused on a hybrid model of organizational theory and why it is a practical model for running a not for profit today. This ILP examined the impact of incorporation of a hybrid of organizational theory in running of nonprofit organizations due to the economic diversity currently experienced by nonprofits in United States of America... Nonprofit organizations are very important in in the American society as they serve people with social needs in numerous significant ways. However, nonprofits’ overreliance on government funding and philanthropy is has been increasingly not sustainable, especially in the wake of today’s fast-changing economic environment.
To that end, the application of hybrid organizational structure will start playing a significant role in improving the sustainability of nonprofits organizations in their pursuit to provide social services. Thus, this ILP has argued that the current traditional organizational models of most nonprofits have to be disrupted by the management of these organization to allow a hybrid model that will facilitate not only financial sustainability but also enable mission-driven success in the nonprofit sector.
