Organizational Capacity Needed to Remain Vital, Effective, and True to Mission.
Paul Connolly, working with Peter York, updated Connolly’s work through the TCC Group. They developed a multidimensional, developmental framework which categorized organizational capacity into four types of capacities. 25 Connolly defined capacity as the “capabilities, knowledge, and resources needed by nonprofits in order to be vital and effective in staying true to their mission”.26 The four types of capacities were defined broadly as follows:
•Adaptive Capacity: the ability of a nonprofit organization to monitor, assess, and respond to internal and external changes.
• Leadership Capacity: the ability of all organizational leaders to create and sustain the vision, inspire, model, prioritize, make decisions, provide direction and innovate, all to achieve the organizational mission.
• Management Capacity: the ability of a nonprofit organization to ensure the effective and efficient use of organizational resources.
• Technical Capacity: the ability of a nonprofit organization to implement all the key organizational and programmatic functions.
