You don’t know what you have until you look, right? An organizational study is intended to provide a closer look at the various components that mesh to make the whole organization work well. There are five stages in our organizational study and analysis. These include:
- Environmental Scan: The environmental scan identifies and analyzes the external context in which the organization functions.
- Internal Analysis: Assessment of the key assets, resources, and capabilities of the organization upon which to build successful strategies.
- Strategies Analysis: Identification of strategies the organization can use to create or maintain a sustainable competitive advantage, which for nonprofits often means consistently delivering high quality services over the long-term.
- Implementation Identification and Recommendations: Identification and recommendation of objectives to set and actions to take for the organization to align with its vision and mission and to achieve its strategic goals.
- Leadership, Structure, and Culture Review and Recommendations: Identification and recommendation of an optimal role for the organization’s leadership, structure, and culture for supporting implementation of the recommendations emerging from the analysis.
