Session One:

Building Organizational Capacity for Greater Impact, with thedatabank co-founder & CEO Chris Hanson, Ph.D.

This session provides a brief overview of the theory behind organizational capacity. We break down organizational capacities into functional areas (dimensions) within the organization and look at those dimensions from the following perspectives:

  • How to assess your organization’s levels of capacity.
  • How to strategically tie dimensions of capacity to your organization’s mission, vision and goals.
  • How to leverage technology to help you understand and build capacities to enable your organization to create greater impact relative to your mission.
  • How to report to stakeholders the impact of their capacity building efforts.
