Author(s): Health Policy Project

Primary Language: English

Date: 7/31/2014


Part of an Organizational Capacity Assessment (OCA) Suite of Tools and developed by the Health Policy Project, the Strengthening Capacity in Policy, Advocacy, Governance, and Finance: A Facilitator Guide for Organizational Capacity Assessments is a facilitated self-assessment tool tailored to an organization’s mission as it relates to health policy. The participatory capacity assessment process supports an organization by

  • Establishing a baseline of the organization’s capacity in key areas
  • Promoting organizational dialogue, learning, and standard setting
  • Informing the development of a capacity-strengthening plan for addressing organizational priorities

The process outlined in the guide supports staff members and other key stakeholders to share their perspectives about the organization’s functioning, strengths, and challenges to undertake work related to health policy. Accompanying the guide are a Capacity Indicators Catalog that identifies the key capacities needed to support relevant technical policy areas and an OCA Results Spreadsheet that creates an electronic report and visual depictions of the capacity assessment based on the indicators chosen from the catalog and a participatory scoring process.
