About this product
- DescriptionEffectively Managing Human Service Organizations is and continues to be a highly used core textbook for courses on human service/social work administration. The book is highly practical and takes students through the nuts and bolts of managing a human service agency (from strategic planning, to problem solving, increasing productivity, supervising staff, and seeking funding). Its value and distinction among competing texts is that it offers a practical, skill-building approach, which is well received by students and faculty. The new edition will be expanded to included much more content on leadership, as this is an area receiving more attention in administration courses and social service agencies as well.
- Author BiographyRalph Brody, Ph.D. passed away on February 8, 2006. Dr. Brody was previously on the faculty of Cleveland State University where he taught social policy and human service administration. He also taught graduate courses on human service delivery models at Case Western Reserve University. Previously, he served for fifteen years as the executive director of the Federation for Community Planning, an organization that provides research, planning and advocacy on health and human services. Dr. Brody authored books on case management, the state legislative process, fundraising events, community problem solving, service learning, and macro practice. Dr. Brody's many years as a manager and teacher convinced him that the issues facing those in human service organizations were universal and applied to boards of directors as well as NGOs. He dedicated himself to developing tools to enhance the understanding and skills of those in leadership roles, from Cleveland to India, Spain, Ghana, Ethiopia, Egypt and Nigeria. His frequent workshops in Kenya led to the translation of his casebook into the Swahili language. His co-authored book with Dr. Nair: Grassroot Development - Establishing Successful Microenterprises has been published in English and Malayalam language. Dr. Brody's work touched millions, and his contributions will continue to educate, inform and inspire future students and professionals in human services field. Murali D.

Columbia University, where Murali received his doctorate, recently inducted him into the institution's School of Social Work hall of fame for his exemplary leadership in social work education and his exceptional professional achievements.
