Situation and organizational Assessments
A situation assessment is a process to identify issues, stakeholders, power dynamics, wants, needs, opportunities, and risks. The situation assessment will give you a clear understanding what is happening, what could happen, and what you can do about it. This tool is finite, results in recommendations, and will inform you on risks and opportunities to support decision-making and successful initiatives.
An organizational assessment takes the elements of a situation assessment and applies it to the teams and systems of organizations. The organizational assessment will evaluate organizational conflict competencies, individual conflict competencies, team dynamics, communication and trust issues, as well as organizational systems and functions that create organizational culture.
By understanding these issues, the organizational assessment can identify active and latent conflict risks, opportunities for problem solving and improving strengths, and make recommendations to improve team effectiveness and organizational performance.
