Information management in non-governmental organisations. How non-profits may address information needs of their internal and external stakeholders

Tomasz Dyczkowski

Abstract

The paper deals with a problem of information management in non-governmental organizations (NGOs). It analyses whether such organizations are capable of pooling data necessary to increase their operational effectiveness and of managing their relations with internal and external stakeholders successfully. The first part focuses on relations between effects which are achieved and presented by an organisation and support it receives from donors and public institutions. Subsequently, sources and scope of information transfer to organization’s internal and external stakeholders are analysed, with special attention paid to existing regulations and standards in this area. Finally, a system of performance measures for NGOs is discussed. Such a system covers primary, subsidiary and internal effects generated by an organization, and extends its managerial data pool. Detailed findings and conclusions can be found in the paper.
