Do you know how to measure your organization's effectiveness?
What could you do if you had the right partner to assess your capacity, develop an action plan, and make data-driven decisions?
Wonder no more.
With the recent certification by TCC Group of our CEO, Emily Benham, FAHP, CFRE, and Director of Strategic Solutions, Tuesdi Dyer, the Nonprofit Leadership Center now has multiple members of staff and select contractors who are equipped to help you measure your nonprofit’s organizational effectiveness in relation to four core capacities – leadership, adaptability, management, and technical – as well as organizational culture via the Core Capacity Assessment Tool or CCAT.
The CCAT is an online, survey-based tool designed to collect information from key decision-makers in your organization and create prioritized recommendations for building organizational capacity. Used by nonprofits more than 5,000 times, the CCAT is a leading assessment tool for measuring a nonprofit’s effectiveness.
Based on decades of research and many large-scale evaluations of capacity-building initiatives conducted around the country, the TCC Group has identified four core capacities that all organizations need to be effective:
The core capacity assessment model also assesses a measure of organizational culture, since the unique history, values, and beliefs of each organization have a significant impact on each of the above core capacities.
When paired with an interpretation session led by one of NLC's skilled facilitators, the CCAT becomes a powerful means of turning assessment into action. CCAT interpretation sessions include a facilitated conversation to discuss and analyze your CCAT results, deepen your understanding of the CCAT findings, prioritize the most urgent needs, and develop a personalized action plan to enhance effectiveness throughout your organization.
NLC facilitators are currently completely booked for all CCAT engagements through the end of 2017. If your nonprofit would like to explore the benefits of the CCAT process, please reach out to Director of Strategic Solutions Tuesdi Dyer to book your assessment and facilitation in early 2018.
