Inspired by the idea of the living organisation and frustrated by the number of organisations who change strategy or mission without considering whether their organisation is ready or capable of delivering on the new strategy, I developed a model for assessing the health of an organisation from the inside out.  The 10 factor model is supported by a diagnostic that will tell an organisation if it is healthy from the inside out.


The model was tested with a number of clients and adopted nationally.  I also adapted the model for use in a nonprofit context by Amnesty International and then worked with them to apply to model to check the health and understand the stability and longevity of their 60 grassroots action groups across Australia.
