"High-performance organization" is a moniker most organizations—private, public, or nonprofit—would love to earn. And yet who can say what "high performance" really means for mission-based nonprofits? More important, how do executives, boards, and funders get there from here?!

The Leap Ambassadors Community, a network of nonprofit executives, has spent a year developing clear, actionable answers to both questions. You can find them in the free—and jargon-free—document "The Performance Imperative: A framework for social-sector excellence" (PI). Here, in a nutshell, the PI's definition of "high performance": the ability to deliver—over a prolonged period of time—meaningful, measurable, and financially sustainable results for the people or causes the organization is in existence to serve.

In this era of scarcity and seismic change, high performance matters more than ever. The social and public sectors are increasingly steering resources toward efforts that are based on a sound analysis of the problem, grounded assumptions about how an organization's activities can lead to the desired change, and leadership that embraces continuous improvement. This formula is at the core of the PI.
