'Learning Organization' has been one of the buzz phrases of recent years, yet what exactly does it mean? How can you strive to become a learning organization? Is they theory really applicable? The answer is in your hands! As the authors say in the introduction to their book: 'We wrestled with some of the bigger, broader, hazier concepts and checked out what is really happening. We looked back through learning theory and compared it to practice, then whittled it down to practical tips. We applied what we know about the dynamics of systems and found workable advice'. In short, this book takes a nebulous concept and transforms it into practical advice. With expert tips for all types of organizations, this inspirational guide provides a no-nonsense summary of how to create a learning organization by focusing on a number of key areas that will help you whether you are: deciding your vision for learning; benefiting from flexible learning; developing your own learning; improving collaborative learning; developing systems for learning; building a centre of learning in your organization. At last - practical advice on a topic clouded by theory!

Winner of the 2014 CASE Warwick Award for Outstanding Research on Alumni Relations and Institutional Advancement Changing demographics are having a substantial impact on college and university student populations. In order to continue garnering funds and supporting their higher education institutions, development offices and individual fundraisers need to learn more about alumni of color. To help move fundraising staff away from a "one size fits all" approach, Engaging Diverse College Alumni provides a comprehensive overview of philanthropy in diverse cultures. Unlike other works on fundraising within communities of color, this book focuses specifically on college and university alumni and offers concrete suggestions for engaging these populations, including best practices as well as approaches to avoid. This practical guide includes: A Comprehensive Overview of Diverse Cultures—use of secondary sources, interviews, and quantitative data to explore the history, motivations, and trends of Latino, African American, Native American, and Asian American and Pacific Islander communities. Practical Recommendations—data-based recommendations and examples integrated throughout the chapters, including "Strategies at a Glance" for quick reference. Best Practices and Innovative Approaches—interviews with advancement staff and alumni of color, an entire chapter outlining successful innovative fundraising programs, and a chapter on common pitfalls to avoid. Both newcomers and seasoned fundraising professionals will find this book to be a compelling and in-depth guide to engaging diverse college alumni.
