The past decade has birthed not only remarkable advances in technology, but also an evolution of thought concerning nonprofit organizations. This ontogeny has brought the nonprofit sector face-to-face with a new reality. A certainty confronting head-on the old mores that have dictated the sensibilities by which a nonprofit’s manner and method were framed. Success, in the 21st century marketplace, now requires a non-profit to be both technically astute and business savvy. It must not only equal or outperform its sister agencies, but also meet challenges posed by the worlds of commerce and government. Its leadership in turn must be equipped to handle these challenges and oversee profitable processes and procedures. This chapter will consider four key requisites for nonprofit leaders in the 21st century: education, technology, know-how, and environment. It will examine the role each plays in a leadership portfolio, along with the difficulties and rewards inherent in their determination and utilization.
