The Alliance for Nonprofit Management is pleased to announce the winner of the 2018 Terry McAdam Book Award: The Goldilocks Challenge: Right-Fit Evidence for the Social Sector
, by Mary Kay Gugerty
and Dean Karlan
(Oxford University Press, 2018).
Now in its 30th year, the Alliance's Terry McAdam Book Award Committee reviews books published in the nonprofit sector; highlights the very best thinking in management, governance, and capacity building; and helps expose practitioners to new knowledge and approaches in the field. This year, after reviewing 21 nonprofit capacity-building books published in 2017 or 2018, the committee determined that The Goldilocks Challenge
best exemplified the spirit of the award: research-to-practice principles; relevance to the whole nonprofit sector; persuasive reasoning; and readability.
