CAPACITY QUIZ - Phase 1
Your organization's "Capacity Quiz" revealed three areas most in need of capacity building:
Based on your team’s ratings, SEED recommends creative attention to stretch your performance in these two domains:
Our team’s ability to embody our values in everything we do; to utilize the unique talents of each contributor; to function with clarity and accountability regarding our roles and responsibilities; to activate and retain volunteers; to engage the wisdom, wealth, and work of our board and advisors, and to establish win-win partnerships.
Our team’s ability to offer products in response to changing market factors; to infuse our specific signature into everything we do; to monetize our offerings to generate earned revenues; to produce clear and compelling messages and marketing, to report back the social return on investments to donors and funders, and to use technology for all it’s worth.
Team Self-Assessment Commentary
Why These Areas Need Attention
PLANNING & IMPLEMENTATION
• We need to do a better job of developing plans and executing on them. We have inherited a situation where the current program doesn’t have much support and there doesn't seem to be too much funder appetite for investing in what we do. We need to develop ideas, plans, and programs, test the investment environment, and implement.
• More planning will help us with the implementation process, We are currently working on developing new resources (e.g., partnerships or volunteer work).
• Over the past few years there have been struggles with fund raising, and without sufficient funds, programs are difficult to run and staff difficult to attain. The infrastructure became an issue as a result of poor resource development. In the way of a chain reaction, one weakness in the chain leads to other areas of the chain being weak.
• We are still in the formative stages of establishing the financial, operational, human and technical resources needed for our next phase.
Why These Areas Are Strengths
EXECUTIVE & SHARED LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT
• Our ED is more than capable of leading us during the development and implementation of new projects; maybe as we grow we will need more training
• We are a small organization with a committed board of directors. Beyond being committed they are currently led by a very capable board president and our board treasurer is highly engaged in the financial management of the organization with a sound background in professional accounting
