Building a Quality Culture
A community activist and visionary who has shared his ideas and experience with hundreds of nonprofit organizations for more than four decades, Don Knapp is an authority on nonprofit management, development planning and downtown revitalization.
Golf Course-Housing Development:
Knowing his board's interest in a public golf course, he proposed to transform Mr. Honeywell's former country estate just north of Wabash into a planned unit development or PUD with clustered housing surrounded by what would become the Honeywell Golf Course, called one of the ten best public courses in Indiana by The Indianapolis Star. Don coordinated the planning for the development, which opened in 1980.
At Macalester, he coordinated job enrichment training for students and their real world supervisors in the Twin Cities using industrial psychologist Frederick Herzberg, creator of the motivation/hygiene theory, as the resource. Herzberg was the author of Work and the Nature of Man, recognized as one of the ten most important business books of the 20th Century. His article Drawing on the right side of the brain for Innovation, which appears on this web site, will also be in a future issue of NONPROFIT WORLD magazine published by the Society for Nonprofit Organizations.
His article Connecting the Dots Downtown was on the home page of the IDA web site through 2003.
Don now lives in Indianapolis, IN and is a consultant to nonprofit organizations.
