Session Notes

The Lifecycles Capacity Lab is a blend of virtual class learning and practical application through an assessment and capacity-building process. We define capacity as the health of your organization in five areas: programming/markets, governance, financial resources (business model), human capital (management/staffing), and administrative systems and processes. Now more than ever during these trying and uncertain times, each organization must strengthen its capacity to deliver on its mission while ensuring its sustainability and relevance.
