Zusammenarbeit zwischen Vorstand und Geschäftsführung in Verbänden und anderen Nonprofit Organisationen


  • Bürgisser, Sarah


Eine gut funktionierende Zusammenarbeit zwischen ehrenamtlichen und hauptamtlichen Mitarbeitenden, insbesondere aber zwischen der hauptamtlichen Geschäftsführung und dem ehrenamtlichen Vorstand, ist für den Erfolg einer jeden Nonprofit-Organisation (NPO) von zentraler Bedeutung. Aufgrund der unterschiedlichen Rahmenbedingungen von Ehrenamt und Hauptamt gestaltet sich diese Zusammenarbeit jedoch äusserst komplex und potenziell konfliktträchtig. Das grundsätzliche Problem der Know-how-, Zeit- und Informationsasymmetrien zulasten der ehrenamtlichen Führung ist bereits gut erforscht. Aber welche Bedeutung haben Persönlichkeitsmerkmale der Beteiligten und die Qualität der Beziehungen in der Zusammenarbeit? Dazu gibt es bis heute kaum Forschungsergebnisse. Der folgende Beitrag fasst die wesentlichen Ergebnisse eines Forschungsprojekts zusammen, das die Lücke zu schliessen versucht.
