That could be the title of a thriller movie or mystery novel ...
Blame Paul Currion who blogs at humanitarian.info. He started the meme about asking for NGO related resources by pushing it out to Nancy White, Hell's Dire Agent, Jennine, Taran, and Declan. Nancy tagged Joitske, Brit, and me. Nancy choose resources more specific to those looking to use distributed group processes and technology in their work. (Note to self: This is all needs an inspiration map to show the relationships and how the content of the meme has morphed ...and some reflection on memes ....)
So, I went back to Paul's original post to read it slowly and I just discovered NGO Manager. Here's their elevator speech:
"NGO Manager aspires to provide a comprehensive range of nonprofit management services to managers of non-governmental organisations (NGOs), including training courses and consultancy, and research on how to improve management capacity building."
Okay, it is a Swiss version of Compasspoint but focused on humanitarian organizations.
Here's more information about how and why it was created:
NGO Manager was created by a small group of professionals working in the humanitarian sector in Geneva, Switzerland, in December 2001. Their starting point was to help NGOs improving their management capacity and performance through a non-profit Internet service. Members from the association NGO Management Group (NMG) maintain and develop the website. NMG is a small independent nonprofit association based near Geneva in Switzerland. Its members are NGO management specialists and practitioners who are working in the fields of development, environment, humanitarian aid and education in the South and the North. Several of NMG's members accomplished their studies in NGO management in the London School of Economics' Centre for Civil Society.
