Strategic Growth Guide for Nonprofit Organizations is a standardized assessment tool that benchmarks where each management system in an organization is relative to the developmental cycle of a nonprofit organization. Executive Leaders, along with other staff and/or Board members, can use this guide to determine their organization’s over all stage of development (Idea, Start Up, Growth, or Established) and to assess whether the development of internal management systems is aligned with their over all development. Ten management dimensions are captured in the tool.
This tool is for leaders interested in measuring their current level of capacity across ten nonprofit management systems. It is also helpful to funders and Board members interested in prioritizing and/or funding capacity building efforts.
