A matter of design


"Intended to disseminate essential information about job design theory to the voluntary sector and to provide helpful hints on how to apply the theory to the management of volunteer programming. This is one of several capacity-building resources released in recognition of the International Year of Volunteers (IYV) 2001, and has been written to assist the professional administrator of volunteer resources, as well as individuals who find themselves managing volunteer programs, either as volunteers themselves or in a paid capacity"
