The Organisational Viability Toolkit was developed by the REC to help civil society organisations (CSOs) to assess their internal performance and then to design appropriate organisational development plans to increase their capacities. This online tool makes the organisational self-assessment process more convenient. Before using the online tool, CSOs are recommended to study the Organisational Viability Toolkit and to familiarise themselves with the main features of organisational self-assessment, in which organisational performance is measured by benchmarking an organisation’s capacities in relation to specific products, processes and practices. The assessment tool groups these capacities into four developmental areas: institutional development; organisational development; systemic development; and programmatic development.
The online tool was developed in the framework of the SECTOR project, implemented by the REC’s Participatory Governance topic area with funding from the Government of Sweden.
