Capacity Building

Bill McNaught has worked with organizations to administer Capacity Tests and engage in depth assessment to strengthen the organizations ability to positively impact target communities.

Capacity Building is a valuable process where the Board and stakeholders actively evaluate organizational processes and the impact of the organization on individuals and communities. The Board will assess the organizational life cycle, ongoing operations and activities to develop opportunities to increase effectiveness and efficiency. The process results in a written Capacity Plan to improve and support leadership, infrastructure, technologies, staff, and administrators.

The process will increase effectiveness and amplify the impact of services while establishing measurable criteria to assess performance and adjust to changing environments.

The organization's position in the life cycle will determine where to focus:

  1. Evolution of core programs
  2. Infrastructure to support and expand services or
  3. Expanding the impact of programs on larger markets

Participants will evaluate: the political, social, demographic economic and technological forces at play; the organizational resources including facilities, human capacity and skills, technology, available time, finances, fundraising, key resources, programs; leadership, adaptability to changing environments, management capabilities, technical abilities and the organizational culture.

The process includes: gathering relevant information; assessing program performance and delivery; evaluating leadership, resilience, management, technologies, finances, & sustainability; brainstorming; exploring options, crafting goals; developing strategies; writing plans for funders to show short and long term adjustments and objectives to attract resources.

The Board and participants will have a thorough understanding of the quality of leadership, adjustments needed to programming and delivery, accountability and organizational responsibility in a team environment, facility management and expansion opportunities, necessary organizational behavior changes, and mechanisms to collaborative internally and externally to increase effectiveness and impact.

  1. History and Direction of the Organization
  2. Financial Posture, Position, Practices:
  3. Leadership in decision making and operations
  4. Environmental Resources
