The Enterprise Capacity Assessment Tool (ECAT) is a way to quickly assess your enterprise’s organizational status and needs. It can be used as a self-assessment tool, as part of a guided collaborative process, or for third-party assessments.
Organizational capacity is the ability for an organization to achieve its mission while anticipating and managing future changes and risks.
The ECAT allows you to get a birds’ eye view of your whole organization and to pinpoint strategic areas for development for maximum impact.
