The paper is based on international research and on the ongoing research of the authors in the field of professionalization of nonprofit organizations. Desk research is supported by the analysis of the results of the pilot project of an organizational development programme in Hungary. The findings of the empirical research serve as a benchmark for the large sample research. Since the paper gives insight over changes in the operational environment of nonprofit organizations that are connected to their learning needs and chosen solutions, and brings practical evidence, it contributes to the current research of professionalization of nonprofit sector organizations internationally.
