The good news is that the nonprofit and for profit sectors are really beginning to learn from each other. Nonprofit and for profit, and government too, are borrowing from each other's values and mindset to create more synergistic enterprises that CROSS traditional boundaries. Why? Because that's what works!
Where bureaucracy (that is, the OLD way of doing things) still prevents or impedes this cross-pollination, we need not accept it. Instead, we can come up with innovative ways to move those road blocks, and eventually, to eliminate them. We can do this, but only if our mindset is such that we say "Now is the time!"
And now is the time indeed. ONWARD!
