Restructuring, downsizing, rationalization, merger. These terms have become a part of every-day conversation within non-governmental organizations(NGOs). Indeed, the NGO community is facing new economic realities in an ever-changing environment. Grabbing the Tiger by the Tail proposes an approach to the organizational changes taking place that will equip NGOs with the skills they need to resolve their problems and inject new life into their organizations. The book describes in clear detail the work method which has been tested in Canadian NGOs and has yielded excellent results.

The book (200 pages) is also available in French
