Capstone – Project

Nonprofit Organizational Assessment Overhaul

A Collaboration Between

Engagement Synopsis

We are a nonprofit management organization specializing in capacity building consultation for our 45-member association of human services nonprofits. Our project goal is to reorganize our capacity building assessment program and to narrow the scope of the program last updated in 2013, to make it more appealing, easy to understand for members and better serve their needs.

The project will hinge on the re-development of a capacity assessment rating system based on existing models that are focused on leadership capacity, adaptive capacity, management capacity and operational/technical capacity, as well as the development of strategy surrounding data to be gathered for assessment of these categories and its delivery to members. Each of the categories will now represent separate assessment products

The new model should be deliverable as an individual consultation product for members first, but must be easy to adapt into a supportive workshop.

Student participants will be expected to suggest a competitive price structure for the final capacity-building assessment product.

Key Project Milestones

  • March 23, 2021 - Assessment of Current Model

    Evaluate current model of capacity building consultation to determine weaknesses and needs going forward.

    Deliver report to project administrator for further guidance.

  • March 24, 2021 - Complete Design Phase

    Re-development of a capacity assessment rating system based on existing models as a starting point.


    Suggested Deliverable:

    Design should focus on leadership capacity, adaptive capacity, management capacity and operational/technical capacity (framing these as individual products), as well as the development of strategy surrounding data to be gathered for assessment of these categories and its delivery to members.

  • March 25, 2021 - Documentation/Presentation of Materials

    The final day of the project should be used to document the new consultation models in a form that can be presented effectively to clients.


    Suggested Deliverable:

    Student participants should develop a power point presentation for potential clients that include visual breakdowns of services (charts, graphs, models and etc.) and a slimmer, printable presentation packet that details the service.
