Pact's Organizational Performance Index (OPI)

April 20, 2017
Capacity development

Capacity development is not simply about improved accounting systems, better strategic plans or new staff skills. Rather, investments in capacity must lead to improved organizational performance. High performing institutions are more effective, efficient, relevant and sustainable, and better able to achieve their missions and develop lasting local solutions.

The Pact Organizational Performance Index (OPI) supports measurement of change in organizational performance, and clarifies the link between capacity development inputs and community level impact. It is a revolutionary yet user-friendly approach that looks beyond the development of organizational systems or skills, and analyzes the actual value added through capacity development efforts.
