On this page we share resources such as frameworks and guides that can aid organisations’ self-assessment and decision-making. They outline methodologies we have used to assess both whole-organisation effectiveness and discrete functions and projects.

The documents range from narrowly-focused to comprehensive ones, and may include examples of good practice, case studies, checklists, questions and templates. They are only guides to approach; all decision-making must depend on the individual context.
