Developed for New Zealand organisations
NZ Navigator is an on-line assessment tool that has been developed for New Zealand community organisations by Platform Trust, Bishop's Action Foundation and is supported by the Department of Internal Affairs / Charities Services.
The focus of NZ Navigator
NZ Navigator is focused on building strong and effective organisations and communities, enabling users to assess the performance of their organisation by rating all the important areas of the organisation's operation direction, governance, leadership, people, administration, finances, communication, evaluation, and relationships.
What are the benefits for my organisation?
Once you complete an assessment, you will have immediate access to a report with charts, scores, feedback and resources (including an action plan) to assist you to further develop your organisation. Although not linked to any funding requirements, you can use the results of the tool when you talk with your funders, to demonstrate the work that you are doing and to highlight those areas where some organisational development activity can be supported.
Because the tool is self-administered, it presents an opportunity for groups to be open and honest about key aspects of their organisation. It also provides a benchmark for future evaluation and you can compare any two assessments to see the progress you have made.
