Abstract

More Organizations are shifting their mode of operations from individual based to group based Operations. A team as far as this study is concerned means a group of Organizational staff employed in various functions and positions, working to contribute collectively towards attainment of Organizational goals. Lack of good management to team processes may hinder organizations aspiring to team mode of operations from harnessing fully the benefits which goes with team settings. They may lead to inefficiency leading to poor performance, for Non-Profit Organizations poor performance is interpreted in terms of failure to achieve intended goals, increased costs of operations and increased financial risks, when this happens to any NGO it is likely that donors for that NGO may cut funds and relocate the same to more efficient and high performing NGOs capable of delivering same goals within acceptable standards. The aim of this study was to assess the Role of teamwork towards Non Profit Organizational performance. The specific objectives of this study were to assess the role of teamwork in Reduction in operating costs, improved monitoring and supervisory support, reduction in workload and Reduction in financial risks. This research takes the form of a case study and the findings were collected through questionnaires and interview method.
