What it means regarding the sentence below:
The main uses of these ideas have been in the evaluations of management efficiencies of decision making units of not-profit variety such as schools, hospitals ect.
and "variety" what does it mean?
The sentence is phrased slightly strangely IMO- is the writer a native speaker?
The title mentions 'not-for-profit' and the sentence 'not-profit'; 'etc' is misspelt.
These may be the OP's typos.
The phrase "management efficiencies" sounds like jargon to me and is not very clear. I would use another word for "variety".
