Organization Assessment

Assessment of Efficiency and Effectiveness of Organizations

In times of reduced revenues, making sure that operations are efficient and effective is essential.  There may be operations of concern or that simply have not had a close look for a long time.  This is a good time to take a close look and either save money, improve performance or both.

Are you facing:

  • Resistance to change?
  • A sense of urgency to make sure money isn’t wasted?
  • An outdated organizational structure?
  • Operational sluggishness and a resistance to improving performance?
  • Pressure to keep things the way they are even though they don’t deliver results?

The Weidner Report has set the stage for the first, serious discussion about the organizational structure of the Vermont affordable housing delivery system. Given the budget challenges of our times it is imperative that policy makers break down the programmatic boxes that we have built around favored programs and look for ways to do things more effective ways. The Report has focused attention on key areas where efficiency, effectiveness and customer service can be greatly improved and lays out a very clear pathway to improving affordable housing delivery in Vermont.
