We need to go back to why we have non-profits and align that vision with how we design their structure. This week's conference at IEI talks about how to motivate workers to be creative. The model of benchmarking doesn't work for creative businesses, according to Dan Pink. I would argue that it doesn't serve non-profits very well, either. North Carolina faces some huge challenges in developing its workforce. It is important to ask questions like "what makes a teacher great" or "how can we address Leandro?" Non-profits should be finding innovative responses to problems.
