When assessing your organisation please consider two factors (1) your practice and (2) your documentation/systems. Sometimes we develop a practice but have no documentation or systems in place to support our way of working. Other times we develop systems and produce documents, but the practice has not been developed. What needs attention or development will vary depending on your organisation’s size, maturity and context.

The following key needs to be considered in each domain, both in practice and documentation/systems.

Workforce Review Tool

This Workforce Review Tool offers you the opportunity to assess your organisation’s approach to capacity building within workforce planning and development. The aim of the review is to help you to be able to identify where your priorities and areas of capacity development are in four domains, including strategic planning, operational planning, organisational development and the employee lifecycle.

What is capacity building?

Capacity building is defined as the process of developing and strengthening the skills, instincts, abilities, processes and resources that organisations and communities need to survive, adapt, and thrive in a fast-changing world. An essential ingredient in capacity building is transformation that is generated and sustained over time from within; transformation of this kind goes beyond performing tasks to changing mindsets and attitudes.
