The Organizational Assessment: An Annual Snapshot of a Nonprofit's Performance Potential
60-minute webinar: Thursday, June 4, 2020 at 12:00pm Pacific Time/ 2:00pm Central Time
This webinar is offered in partnership with our partners at Washington Nonprofits
It's a well-known fact that people and organizations are stronger and more grounded in creating their futures when accurate information is the basis for their decision-making. Yet, as diverse stakeholders are invited into solving problems, leveraging opportunities, and charting the future, many are taking part in conversations that are based on a low-degree of facts and a high-degree of subjectivity.
A well-timed and thoughtful assessment is as fundamental to the health and vitality of an organization as a physical examination is for any living thing. The results provide an indication of areas that are functioning as needed and expected. It also can draw attention to processes or systems that may be underperforming or putting the organization's viability ultimately at risk.
This one-hour overview of organizational assessments offers a framework for participants to consider the key elements of a reasonable review and have a discussion within their own association, congregation or charitable cause about what constitutes reasonable evaluation of the key indicators of their performance. At Third Sector Company, we believe that the results of an organizational assessment create a foundation for deeper dive evaluations aimed at the chief executive performance review process and an annual board assessment.
You will leave this course ready to:
· Construct a thoughtful organizational assessment framework
· Engage in a directed conversation with board and management about starting a reasonable organizational assessment process and its value to both management and governance
· Coordinate a timed evaluation culture that creates a synergistic relationship between an organizational assessment and the resulting impact on executive and board performance reviews
