Local Capacity Initiative Facilitated Discussion and Capacity Assessment Tool: Facilitator's Manual
The purpose of this manual, prepared by Advancing Partners & Communities with support from the Health Policy Project, is to help determine technical assistance needs and to conduct an assessment of an organization’s policy, advocacy, and organizational systems capacity. The assessment consists of a facilitated self-assessment as well as optional stakeholder interviews. The tool is divided into five major sections (LCI outcome areas); four of these areas focus on critical elements for advocacy and one focuses on overall organizational capacity. Additionally, there are in-depth domains associated with each larger outcome, which can be used to further review capacity.
