Spring Cleaning

Community-powered social innovation.

Coming Soon

After 28 years of awarding nonprofit innovation—change that creates a new dimension of performance, as Drucker defined it—we will soon launch the next generation of our tool for nonprofit leadership effectiveness. Spring Cleaning is a community-powered workshop event dedicated to nonprofit management and based on Drucker’s discipline of planned abandonment.

“To call abandonment an ‘opportunity’ may come as a surprise,” Drucker wrote. “Yet planned, purposeful abandonment of the old and of the unrewarding is a prerequisite to successful pursuit of the new and highly promising. Above all, abandonment is the key to innovation—both because it frees the necessary resources and because it stimulates the search for the new that will replace the old.”
