Abstract

The nonprofit phenomenon is a topic conceptually much debated by scholars who deal with this both in Italy and in the international context. Often, the lack of profit in nonprofit organizations, together with the limited availability of financial resources, determining the crucial issues and difficult to overcome: the voluntary (or, in more general terms, the absence of profit-making) tends to give a little consideration to the use of practices and traditional management tools generally considered business reality. Based on what mentioned above, this work is aimed at giving response to the theme of the relationship between nonprofit and its requirements of professionalization or management overhaul. Highlighting those items might be useful for the management of nonprofit organizations: in this sense, if the critical factors just mentioned make up for these potential causes of problems, then, and on the other hand, the effective and efficient their presence would guarantee the achievement of any one or more competitive advantages, by means of their appropriate and adequate enhancement.
