dc.description.abstractNon-profit organizations play a significant role in defining social issues, finding alternatives, and even attaining social goals in a multitude of fields that may or may not be covered effectively by government administrations. These non-profit organisations are in fields ranging from education, health care, disaster relief, social work, and general enhancement of human condition, have played a critical part in the country's economy in addition to social system. However, performance of these nonprofit organizations has been declining over the years. These nonprofit organizations are now characterized with low donor funding, inefficiency in outreach, inefficiency in resource utilization, decrease in accountability for results and non-accomplishment of set goals and objectives. The purpose of the research therefore was to establish the effects of strategic management practices on performance of non-profit organisations in Renk County, South Sudan. The specific objectives are; establishing effect of strategy formulation, strategy implementation and strategy evaluation on performance of non-profit organisation in Renk County. Stakeholder theory, RBV and open system theory directed the study. The research was conducted by means of descriptive and explanatory research design. The study population constituted of 76 respondents from 19 nonprofit organisations. The researcher was able to get a sample size of 38 interviewees. Data collected using semi-structured questionnaires administered by the researcher in person. The questionnaire was piloted among 10 managers to determine both content and construct validity and to establish whether the questions measured the expected theorized variables. The study addressed reliability using the Cronbach Alpha statistical test. The cutoff point of the reliability test was 0.7. Manifold regressions helped to fix relationship, type & extent in respect to relationship between variables. The study concludes that strategy formulation influences positively on the performance of nonprofit organisations. This implies that proper attention needs to be put on better understanding of strategy formulation through training of all employees and stakeholders in the organization. Findings indicated the availability of a significant effect of strategy formulation on organizational performance; strategy implementation recorded a significant positive effect on performance of nonprofit organisations in Renk County, South Sudan. The findings on strategy evaluation too signified the considerable optimistic effects of strategy evaluation on organizational performance. According to the results, it is evident that strategy evaluation had the greatest control over performance of non-profit organizations. The study recommended that management of nonprofit organisations should cultivate relationships with their stakeholders that encourage them to achieve desired results. This can be accomplished by changing mindsets, make-ups & traditions, giving attentiveness to shareholders interests so as to gain assistance & backing from them for strategy implementation. It is recommended that top-level managers of nonprofit organisations or even other related organisations must pursue additional idea from the lower-level managers. Finally, the research reveals that the administration of nonprofit organisations should provide frontline managers with chances for training and development in organizational performance.en_US
