The Marguerite Casey Foundation offers a free self-assessment tool to review organizational capacity. It is a classic maturity model tool, easy to use and free.
The self-guided assessment tool helps you determine where to focus your efforts in an overarching capacity improvement initiative. The tool won’t tell you what you need to do to improve, but it will tell you the area(s) in your organization that need to most focus to achieve improvement.
The assessment guides you through the 4 dimensions of capacity measurement, shown above, and tabulates your responses to show a finished summary. A review of the scores within each of the dimensions helps to clarify those functional or strategic areas that need the most attention.
