Organizational analysis is the systematic process of reviewing the development, work environment, personnel and operation of an institution. Too often this type of review may be only conducted in response to crisis, if at all. It should, however, be an integral part of regularly validating how well all parts of an organization are supporting each other in implementing the strategic plan. And, for anyone driving a performance improvement initiative, it is critical for understanding how your initiative works within the larger organizational performance.

This presentation will look at the tools used for conducting organizational analysis, discuss their strengths and consider which combinations are best suited to particular environments.  Participants will be encouraged to contribute their experience and reflect on how to optimize using organizational analysis tools, so that the analysis doesn't just gather data, but generates insight.
