How Healthy is Your Nonprofit? Take an Organizational Snapshot - Foster Results
Do you know the true health of your nonprofit today? The beginning of a new year is always a good time to step back and take a panoramic look at your organization. If the picture you’re getting isn’t clear, it may be time to assess your internal processes.
Assessing Your Processes
Effective processes work to efficiently keep your organization on track to reaching overall goals while staying true to your nonprofit’s mission. Examine your daily processes honestly and ask yourself:
· Does this particular process help us reach our big picture goals?
· Does this process help streamline the organization?
After the Snapshot: Ongoing Measurement
Once you’ve taken a hard look at your nonprofit’s situation and streamlined your processes, you should be on your way to a healthier and more focused organization. However, it doesn’t stop there. It’s important to continually review your systems in order to make sure your processes stay effective.
