Adapting surveys for nonprofit research

Authors


Abstract

Many useful survey instruments have been developed in the for-profit management arena, but they often require varying levels of adaptation for relevant application in the nonprofit context. This research note first explains key steps in the process for adapting and testing a survey instrument. It then illustrates how each step should be applied and reported using a case study adaptation of Hodgkinson's (1992) strategic locus of control instrument for nonprofit use.
