An excellent source of research and ideas on nonprofit capacity-building is Carter McNamara and his Authenticity Consulting group. Carter employs the following general definition of capacity-building in his work:
The concept of capacity building in nonprofits is similar to the concept of organizational development, organizational effectiveness and/or organizational performance management in for-profits. Capacity building efforts can include a broad range of approaches, eg, granting operating funds, granting management development funds, providing training and development sessions, providing coaching, supporting collaboration with other nonprofits, etc. Prominent methods of organizational performance management in for-profits are beginning to be mentioned in discussions about capacity building, as well, for example, the Balanced Scorecard, principles of organizational change, cultural change, organizational learning, etc.
See the resources on capacity-building on his website at Authenticity Consulting
A superb source of info on earned income and social enterprise is www.se-alliance.org. The Social Enterprise Alliance also has an excellent listserve at www.npenterprise.net that provides an opportunity for nonprofit enterprises to share and seek advice on specific topics.
