Organizational Capacity: An Enhanced Framework

This report provides an overview of current organizational capacity literature and proposes a new enhanced framework that reflects on the evolution of capacity development thinking in recent years. The framework also considers MOMENTUM’s programmatic interests in performance, resilience, sustainability, adaptive learning, and systems thinking. This new framework hones in on a limited set of key observable behaviors and practices that drive organizational performance rather than on the documents and structures often sought as evidence of organizational capacity. By doing so, it offers preliminary suggestions for how MOMENTUM and others can use the framework for capacity planning and measurement and brings organizational performance to the forefront of capacity development.
