Raymond Offenheiser, president of Oxfam America,a major international relief and development nongovernmental organization (NGO), is working with his staff to undertake a major strategic shift in the organization. The organization is placing a growing emphasis on linking international programs to political advocacy, and Offenheiser and his staff are considering the organizational changes required to implement this strategy effectively. He must seek ways to effectively balance the desire for autonomy and flexibility of field programs without the benefits of greater integration with the international structure of Oxfam affiliates (Oxfam International). He and his staff also need to consider how the new strategy will affect fundraising, communications, and the board.
