In and around not for profit and charity organisations there is a continual debate about ‘overhead’ or ‘admin’ costs. The debate often heats up when annual reports are created and the piecharts found on the back page. It’s a strange debate as I talked about on an early podcast last year.
This is a brilliant video talking about this issue from a different angle. Much more eloquently than I. And while it created by organisations in a specific context (San Antonio, USA), its message is relevant globally.
And if you’d like to listen to passionate TED talk on the issues watch Dan Pallota.
Overhead costs, are they currently are defined, are not a luxury, most of them are essential.
