Organizational Health Check
How do you measure up against your peers?
The success of an organization is based on its ability to adapt and adopt necessary changes to maintain its influence and performance. Before making important decisions, the organization needs to investigate its current situation, analyzing different aspects. Organizational assessment helps organizations understand what they can change in order to improve. Half of all business start-ups and 30% of all non-profits will closed this year, because of poor fiscal planning, contractual compliance, high staff turnover rates and infrastructure challenges.
Organizational assessment and evaluation is a process that aims to evaluate the performance of an organization by analyzing different areas and factors. Organizations require an evaluation because they need to locate points of strength, risks, and areas that need improvement. Organizational assessment can be useful in the decision-making process because organizations need to be aware of all the factors that influence performance in order to plan for the future.
Organizational assessment can help to identify resources to improve performance and increase the bottom line. In specific stages of development, organizational assessment is a crucial step to make decisions related to mission, growth, investments, and partnerships.
What are organizational assessment tools and methods?
The assessment and evaluation of an organization needs to be planned in advance because it is a complex process that requires time, money, and collaboration among the team that evaluates it and the staff of the organization. As the process may temporarily divert the energy and efforts of the organization, it is essential that the tools and methods are efficient and focused on the areas of interest. The specific elements that are typically considered during an organizational assessment are:
- Management: Management structure and performance
- Staff: Staff skills, requirements, and performance
- Services and facilities: Services that support management and staff, such as administrative support, technology, and maintenance facilities
- Financial issues: Income, expenses, and marketing
- Tasks and organization: Structure of the organization, skills needed to perform specific tasks, and reward systems
