Development of the ISO Organisational Capability Self-Assessment Tool

The Organisational Capability Self-Assessment Tool, developed as part of MSD's Investing in Services for Outcomes programme, was released in January 2013. This followed significant consultation and testing with the Ministerial-appointed NGO Advisory Group, a range of MSD-funded providers, capacity and capability specialists and researchers and MSD funding and contracting staff.

In the following video Liz Kinley, Lead Strategic Advisor for the Ministry of Social Development and Nan Wehipeihana, capability specialist from The Kinnect Group talk about why the Organisational Capability Framework was developed, how the tool was developed, who was involved and why they believed the tool would work well for MSD-funded providers around the country.
