  • 5. Why a small organisations toolkit?• In 2009-10 - effectiveness standards were largely developed by and for large organisations – e.g. HAP, SPHERE, People in Aid etc• NIDOS members are largely small organisations and these standards were not suitable for their needs• There was a clear demand from members for a simpler tool, for self-assessment
  • 6. New NIDOS toolkitFrom the review, members asked for:• Even simpler tool for small organisations• More focus on operational issues, not just principles• Quick ‘basic check’ stage to startNew tool is 2 stage:1. MOT 2. Full Assessment
  • 7. Stage 1: MOT
  • 8. Stage 2: Full Assessment
  • 9. The Online Toolkitwww.effectiveness.nidos.org.uk MOT is now available Full Assessment to follow in 2013
  • 10. Bond Health Check• Through the Bond Effectiveness Programme, Bond has developed a Health Check tool – similar in purpose to the NIDOS Effectiveness Toolkit, through consulting their members• Bond’s Health Check is more comprehensive and likely to be suitable for bigger and more complex organisations but can be used by any sized organisation• For those wanting to check it out www.bond.org.uk/pages/self-assessment-tool.html
