1. One of the fields in which nonprofits have historically played key role is healthcare. However, the changes in healthcare over the past few decades have reduced the differences in the operations of nonprofit and for profit providers to the point where some question the tax exemption for these nonprofits. In your opinion, giving the limitations in altering pricing structures and business models, how do you feel that nonprofit providers can differentiate themselves?
2. Many nonprofit organizations pride themselves on providing employment for community residents, and also for attracting individuals who are motivated by the mission. However, some nonprofits, such as those that work in housing, must hire persons with very specific skill sets in order to be successful at their mission. How can these nonprofits strike a balance between having the needed skills and also developing a local workforce?
